This is an uncomfortable situation to be in, I would distance myself from those teachers and coaches. If they seek you out I would explain to them that the behavior is not appropriate and needs the interactions need to be on a professional level only. If the behavior continues I would notify administration that this is occurring and the behavior is making you uncomfortable and you have asked them to stop and they have not.

This unacceptable, and should be addressed immediately. You should not feel uncomfortable in an environment where you are all suppose to be professional and working, as well as working around children. I would personally try talking to either the teacher you are interning with, or if you are not interning with a cooperating teacher or they are apart of the problem, you should go to the principle or your university supervisor (if you're interning with a university). I would personally, if this were me in the situation, also try talking to those who are flirting and making me uncomfortable. I know sometimes flirting can be difficult to identify if it's not straight forward, a lot of people can mistake being polite with flirting. So, I think it would help to make those suspected of it alert of how you feel, that way they can acknowledge the situation and avoid making you uncomfortable again. If they refuse or react negatively, definitely move on to what I mentioned in the beginning and go straight to someone in charge.

This type of professional workplace should be kept professional which is why I completely agree.

That is a very uncomfortable situation. I would keep my distance from those teachers. I would also discuss this with my Cooperating Teacher and get their opinion. I would then avoid and ignore those advances from the flirtatious teachers.
