NO Teamwork
What do you do when you are new on the team and they don't like you because you actually do your job. For example, when paperwork is due, they don't complete it, but you do, and then your team goes around the school telling everyone you try to make them look bad and you think you "outshine" them. But really you are just doing your job...

Keep doing your job, and have a conversation with the team. If the team is not receptive, you may want to speak with administration to explain your frustrations. The admin. team may have more insight and be able to provide some options for fixing the situation.

However difficult it may be, you may need to have a conversation with them. Let them know exactly how you feel, and offer to help in any way you can. You could also offer to host collaborative meetings in your room, complete with snacks of course, and all of you could work on your paperwork together. Many hands make light the work!

I would try to talk to them like an adult. If that is not possible, I would get someone from administration to intervene. Not one person wants to work in an uncomfortable environment. Someone has to make sure that they maintain a level of professionalism.

Just ignore the comments and continue to be a great teacher! Do not stop being yourself because they lack the ability to follow instructions.

Exactly! You keep doing everything you are doing and don't worry about what the other teachers are saying.

I am currently on a team of very unprofessional teachers. They don't do their duties, they don't respond to email, they talk during grade level meetings and onsight trainings. Basically, unless there is an administrator present, I can count on being a frustrated teammate. I suggest you keep performing as a professional and that you might make helpful suggestions to them. I mostly try to find my joy in teaching every day and ignore the adults around me that are behaving in an unprofessional manner.

I have been in a similar situation. One of the first steps is to talk with your teammates. If this does not work, administration needs to get involved.

Try to do team bonding activities like you would with your students. Sometimes its hard for people to open up and get used to one another.

I would try to involve the others on your team to collaborate on the paperwork. I would explain to them that you want to work together so everyone succeeds.

Just don't assign teams or group work. It does not end up well for the teacher or the student, it is a headache for both parties

I would first try to communicate with them and figure out why you are able to get your work done and they aren't. then maybe you could set up work parties, such as all getting together and completing your paper work together.
