I am in my second year of teaching and I am still getting treated like a trainee teacher. All the teachers seem to view me as incapable and never really give me any responsibilities. I guess I have brought this on myself because I am not the most assertive person and I do lack in confidence. There is a senior management position going and a member of staff said laughing 'I vote you do it' as if that would be really funny because I am not able to do it. When ever someone wants to know what is going on in my year group they ask the other teacher in the year group, never me. I thought it might be because of my age (24) but there is another teacher who is 25 and started the year before me who doesn't get treated like this. She is a very good teacher and seems to get more respect from the staff. Maybe I reading too much into this. Is this normal? Do I need to step up my game?
