I have tried the compliment sandwich, I've tried light, breezy conversation about "what if we tried this?!" type stuff, etc. Not working.
How do you fix weak students when this teacher takes offense to "interference?" I know I am not a perfect teacher, but I really want to make this band be all it can be.
For what it's worth, this is between two assistants near in age and teaching experience. I am trying to figure out another option besides "go to your head director." She can't make the other director receive help more easily. She actually told me "you know how he is, just let him be." So...yeah. I truly want to have a good teaching environment, but also get our scores up in this section. Any advice is appreciated.
