Hi I am an LSA and was in a year 8 class today...found myself wandering round nosing at what the students were doing while the teacher popped out for 2 minutes. One student proceded to ask what my role at the school was, to which I replied and that I was thinking of teaching in the future. This student then replied 'well wait 5 years cos I won't be in this school then' and laughed. I thought this was quite rude, and a sly indication of her dislike towards me. I have previously seen her looking at my arms ( which have a bit more hair on them than most women ) , gesturing to her peers and sniggering. I must say it takes me back to being teased at school and I don't like it, but have chosen to let it slide for the meantime unless it happens again. My guesses are that this girl is simply trying to test my reaction-and is finding buttons to press. My question is that it bothers me now while i am still new, but will it get better as in will I be able to take it on the chin in the future? do we ever become 'immune' to these insults and snide comments?
