Hi everyone - I would really appreciate your support/advice On Friday I had to speak with a TA in my class as she had accused me of creating a bad atmosphere in the classroom because some mornings I sit & work quietly (I am the class teacher). I discussed the differences between our two jobs & she then stated that I 'took the p***' when I asked her (with another TA) to take a group of children to an activity outside of class & I stayed behind to work with the remaining children. I stated that it was part of my role as the teacher to direct her & the other staff in activities and she stated that the 'she didn't give a s***' and stood up and left the classroom, slamming the door and telling me that 'i can write that in my sh****' little notes'. This TA has behaved this way in previous classes but has never been spoken to about it. She does struggle with her moods & has started snapping at the children and the other adults in class ( I was planning on talking to her about this in our less than successful meeting) . I've also just discovered that in this last week she has been saying to other staff in the school that 'I am mean to her' and that I am taking out the stresses of my job on her. I have 3 TA's (I work in SEN) and they have all stated that I treat them fairly. I have spoken with my SMT about this and they agree that her behaviour is unprofessional & unacceptable, but have asked me what I would like to do about it?
