I agree with the last comment. I would ask the principal to talk to her if you didn't feel you could speak with her. I had a teacher coming to my office using my phone to make conference calls with a student. She asked to do it one time before and I said yes and could you limit the call as I only have one phone line. She talked for 10-15 min loudly with a parent about the student's behavior and passing the phone back and forth between herself and the student. All this in front of the other kids in the clinic. Several days later she was back in my clinic on my phone doing the same thing. I announced that the call must be short and she went on and on for about 15 min with the same kid. So I went in the office and spoke to a clerk about the situation and she said the teacher was supposed to use the office or library phone. I sent her an email and she went back and forth with me about I told on her, the other phones were too far from her class, she would probably stop calling the parent and the behavior wouldn't be dealt with immediately. She also said she asked to use the phone, yes I gave her permission for one time, not the whole year. So then I stopped biting my tongue and wrote back that my phone was part of an essential tool in my clinic that I couldn't tie up with long conference calls. And that she needed to speak with the principal about her situation. The end. She has acted cooly ever since. But I felt better. :spin: So you may have to fall out with one or two if they try to run over you. The chain of command is: teacher sends student to clinic, nurse evaluates, nurse decides if student should stay or go. She has a problem with that? Is she new?
She must control her phobias! :angryfire She can't take over a person's job who was hired to do what she is qualified to do. Yes, she needs to be educated, I agree. Then she must follow the rules and regs of nursemanship (made that up)= nurse leadership. She can do that at home (screen the kiddos) but must control that at school(taking over).
I found that if you let some teachers intimidate you , they will make you feel incompetent. Then you won't be happy. Whenever I've gone to my principal, which has been few, about a teacher, he backs me 100%. They don't want our job, believe me! Good Luck and let us know how it's going!
