Maybe take them out for coffee / a drink and get to know them better. Sometimes that’s all it takes. If it continues, have a one on one and ask to establish a relationship of mutual respect. If all else fails, document everything.

Thank you!

Stay strong and stand tall. Don’t let them make you feel small EVER.

Anytime. Either way, you should document everything anyway... just in case

Also... listen to the latest podcast of “safe for work” very relevant to this issue.

Thank you so much

Have you ever dealt with a colleague that believes in extremely (in my opinion) outdated or even just false claims and treats them as scientific facts? I work with several older men but one of them practices "provocative therapy" as in you just play the devil's advocate with your patient and side with the negative half of their thinking. In theory I could see this working situationally, but as a whole philosophy regardless of the patient's issue I think it's ridiculous.

Really looking for a way to turn around a toxic building culture with staff to staff bullying, cliques/social isolation, hard feelings on big topics (racism, non acceptance of gender identity). Last year the staff polarized with the lead bully whom I helped leave. And the lead gossip (who was my secretary) that gained their sympathy and turned them against me. She also left. Now I need to regain trust and eliminate unacceptable teacher behaviors. Open to any and all advice.

Admin has to know she treats the kids this way too. One teacher has to work with her door closed to not hear the yelling all day.
