I’m a teachers assistant in a self contained classroom. There are ten students with different disabilities. I’ve been at this workplace for four months and it started well. The teacher and I seemed to get along and she gave me a lot of responsibilities. Lately, though, I’ve been invisible. Where I would help one child with writing - now she does it. Where I would hand out folders - now she does it. There are a lot of behavioral issues in the class, and I know it doesn’t help that the students don’t listen to me. I feel like it’s my fault this is happening. It is no secret she would rather have another TA in there - one she has worked with for three years who was moved before I started. I really don’t know what to do anymore. I’m trying to reach out to these kids, and the teacher has challenged me to think up ways to help them, but I have tapped flat on my face. How do I deal with this? I’m worried about losing my job.
