Re: mean "girls" in the work place

Documenting is good. Have you read anything on Relational Aggression? I found some of the articles to be very helpful in identifying and helping handle the mean girl.

Re: mean "girls" in the work place

Sorry Lucy, that I never got back to you.


I've not read any info on that.


update: I've spoke with "boss" and "big boss" situation is better. I've thought about asking for a transfer to another school...changed my mind....and am in the process of "waffeling".

The school isn't totally toxic, but depressing....

I asked big boss about transferring today....she didn't think I could, but will check with her boss.

Wish me luck

Re: mean "girls" in the work place

What other options do you have, snafu?

I recently started working in a school. We have cliques and mean girls. I found a group to be with. It makes lunch easier.

Re: mean "girls" in the work place

The staff in the class I'm assigned to are unprofessional, one woman started an arguement with another one in front of the students; they will discuss inappropriate topics in front of students; today the teacher left the room threatening to quit.....

That's terrible. Maybe she will quit and things will improve if you can't move.

Re: mean "girls" in the work place

I'm changing the way I respond to the mean girl. She's making the same predictable low level snark she has in the past.

I'd planned comebacks (note the predictable comments) and shut her down.

I'm pretty sure her next step will be
a) she makes another attempt to control me/what I'm doing
b) she trys to get me in trouble/have the teacher enforce what she wants.

I have planned responses for both of those instances.😈
