People who do not want to do their job.
Slow learners.They can't understand easily.
People who think they already know everything and are so set in their ways that they cannot abide it when other people bring their own ideological and methodological beliefs into the mix. People with genuinely negative attitudes. People who take things too personally.
Those who dont wish to pay attention to alarming stages even.
I like people generally, and am pretty empathetic in terms of trying to understand the perspectives and experiences of others, so intolerant, impatient, or rude people tend to push my buttons, But the reality is that despite an individuals shortcomings, I can usually find a redeeming quality to focus on so that I look upon them in a positive way. At the end of the day, who am I to judge?
In the past, I have found it difficult to work with others who see themselves as better than others, who can take criticism, and who refuse to work with others. I have found it challenging to work with them b/c I am a team oriented person who feels the importance of working together over the needs of the individual especially in a learning environment.
People who are lazy or do not care. I hold myself to a high professional standard and would expect my peers to hold themselves accountable professionally.
Those who are inflexible or unwilling to admit that they were/are wrong. Those who cannot change their attitudes or behaviors to fit the needs of their school, colleagues, or students are ineffective and a bad example of the educator role within society. A teacher, or really anyone within the profession of education, needs to be willing to make mistakes, learn from them, and move on to do something differently the next time until that something works.
