This is another one I wrote for Teach Secondary Magazine (whose staff foolishly continue to fuel my delusions of grandeur by putting me in their rather fine publication). It includes all sorts of goodness in regards to many aspects of teaching. You can support this dangerous lack of judgement on their part by subscribing at http://www.teachsecondary.com if you fancy. Cheers medears.
Even if you’re beloved by all like yours truly (I haven’t heard any different, alright?) statistically you’re bound to come across someone you have difficulty getting on with at work. Now, I’m not talking about the truly repulsive specimen of the workplace bully – those guys need to be identified, flayed, put somewhere dark and damp and forgotten about. No, I’m talking about those guys who, usually through no fault of their own, rub you up the wrong way. Much like a hedgehog on a gauze.
