If you’re a new teacher starting and you’re struggling with the decision and wondering what you want to end a relationship with, here are 14 signs that your relationship with the teacher has toxic potential.
These 14 signs may not seem particularly shocking to you — after all, youve been doing this same thing for a while now and you know what to expect. The trick is to take a look at them and see if youre ready to address the problem. If your teacher is in an unhealthy state of love, jealousy, and dependency — if the teacher is using you as a means to get and maintain their way in life — you are setting yourself up for failure.
A teacher who uses you as a tool is not the place for positive relationships. Your goal is not to manipulate and control, it is to be yourself. No one needs to be “toxic” in order to be helpful and successful.
