It is always difficult to work with other teachers who are not as
professionally committed as you are. I wonder what your colleague's
problem is? Does she/he dilike your school and/or teaching assignment? Is
she/he intimidated by the super job that you do? Does this person feel
unprepared to teach DBAE? Does she/he discuss why she teaches the way
she/he does? Is this person burned out? It has been my experience that
those people seldom change. It does help to understand why they do as they
do. You can continue to set a good example, but I know from experience
that it is discouraging to see other "supposed" professionals who don't
appear interested in doing what they should be doing. Try to keep your
enthusiasm and please don't let the other teacher tempt you to drop your
standards. Good luck. Ann
