Today, I started my first teaching job ever. As I was teaching, another teacher interrupted my class about 5 times because she thought it was her class. Not only did she ruin my confidence, her behavior caused my students to laugh at me. FML

No need to worry, just make sure the next day you show you are in control so the students don't take you as a light weight.

Do you share a room or something? How does a teacher confuse someone else's class for her own?

That sucks. Hope everything turned out ok!

Once or twice is ok, but five times? Someone needs to get their classroom and role straightened out...

How did she think it was her class 5 times? Does she have some sort of memory loss?

How to exert power 101 > Bake cookies > Bring to class > Sit down at desk with an apple (for aesthetics) > Eat them all whilst staring into each individual child's soul in complete silence > When finished all cookies proclaim "This is my swamp" > Get back to teaching pretending nothing ever happened

At the end of the year, look them all dead in the eyes and say "it's all oger now"

13 and 24: All of the internet a for you.

Why? Just why?

Hope lesson two is/was better for you OP ! If she keeps it up though I would report it... As that isn't fair to you when you're only new !

Won't be the last time your students laugh at you. Kids are evil, don't worry :)

if by kids you mean people everywhere

No, children are particularly evil. They haven't learned how to be ashamed or polite yet.

I am a child. I can confirm that we are evil as shit.

Id like to say "shit happens". But this is a new one for me, so I got nothing.

And 5 times at that! She must've been high! Lol

That's what I wanna know! I know that sometimes, when teachers are new, some schools have another, more experienced teacher help the new one out, but the way OP's if this is the case then wtf's wrong with the other one!?

Unless shes teaching teachers?

Assert your authority early. That's my best advice.

Yes, OP. Hang that woman by her thumbs.

Regain that confidence! Remember the mistake was theirs not yours.

confidence is overrated. let her keep doing her thing until she realizes and she looks like an idiot.
