I have recently been promoted and now have a TLR within my department. Part of my new role is to revamp our schemes of work and create medium and short-term plans as most of our units did not have these. I enjoy this but it is a mammoth task, though my HoD is realistic in term of target-setting for me so that is good. The problem is that a couple of the older teachers have made snide comments about materials I have provided, saying in front of a roomful of people that they were 'dry' or didn't really work. In one case it turned out he hadn't taken in a key resource and it was hinted that this was my fault as he had said 10 minutes before the lesson to me "Have I got anything else for this?" but I was about to go to my own lesson and couldn't look at it properly. Am I right in thinking that people are still responsible for their own lessons and may wish to adjust what I have planned to suit their own style and needs of their particlar students? If they wish to clarify something with me should it not be done at a mutually convenient time, not when I am rushing to a lesson? I hope I'm not being overly sensitive and precious about this. I, like most other teachers have some great lessons in a week and some not so great. I have had positive feedback from other colleagues. I'm not really sure how to handle this, I'm starting to dread a couple of the teachers teaching a particular unit because I know what the comments will be after! Thanks for reading.
