How do you deal (tactfully) with overbearing teachers that butt in and try to do your job for you? I have been at this school for four years and I love my campus but throughout this time this one teacher has occasionally butted in and has tried to run my office.
If she doesn't like how I have handled something she gets on her cell phone
and calls the parent. If one of her "teachers pets" are sick or injured she comes in with them and takes over my office and tries to do everything herself.
And take for instance today she was angry that I sent a kid back to her room that she felt should have gone home. Kid came in with sore throat with one hour to go before school let out. Throat appeared completely normal and he wasn't running a fever and had no other symptoms. . She later came in and demanded to know exactly what his throat looked like and proceeded to tell me the kid was sitting in her room with his head down and looked terrible. Kid acted completely normal while in my office! Not to mention no observable symptoms.
I keep wanting to blow my top and tell her that I don't come into her classroom and tell her how to teach and that until she goes through nursing school she needs to stay out of my office and let me do my job, but that wouldn't be very tactful. I enjoy her company any other time but her intrusiveness makes my job very hard and my patience is wearing very thin....any advice?
