Telling someone to keep their faith at home-or out of their work or life or whatever- is like asking someone of color to not let it affect their everyday life. It's like asking someone to not use their past personal experiences in their decisions in life-decisions that can change their future. It can't be done. Once a faith is as strong as many Christian's faith is it is as much a part of us as our skin color, our hair color, our eye color, our heartbeat. My Christian faith is something that will ALWAYS be a part of my life. 24/7. Non-stop. My faith is with me when I wake up, and when I lie down to sleep. It's with me in the good times, and it's with me in the bad times. My faith...is something that is engrained into me. Whether people like it our not once a faith becomes as strong as mine has over the years there's no excluding it from ANY part of your life-work or otherwise.

The kids at my work LOVE THIS SONG!
I need some advice.
I’ve been working at this daycare center for almost 3 months now and I LOVE it there. I work with the age group that I adore, and the kids are truly amazing. My co-workers are really nice(Except for one that seems to have issue with me but she’s on maternity leave for like 3 months.) and I get along well with them.

Recently though they hired a new Lead Teacher for the Pre-K room I’m in. I know I’m just an assistant but I have experience with these kids, I have my Associates in Early Childhood Education and I have been working with kids since my sophomore year in high school. The issues is that this new lead teacher is very rude-at least in my opinion. Here’s some examples:
1) One of the girls the other day had her feelings hurt by two of the other children that she was playing with. So she went off alone and was crying. When the new lead teacher asked what was wrong the little girl told her and the lead teacher said “That’s nothing to cry about.” Not giving her anything more. I went and talked to her-the little girl-(What my co-worker had said rubbed me the wrong way SO bad!) and asked her what happened, and if she had told the other girls that they had hurt her feelings. She said no. I explained that she needed to communicate with them because they may not have known that they hurt her feelings. After that I told her that if she felt something was worth crying over to go ahead and cry. That no one should tell her that her emotions didn’t have a reason behind them(They’re 5 for crying out loud!).
2) I overheard the new co-worker and the lady that went on Maternity leave talking and the new lead teacher had said “IF I’m here next year then (Blah blah blah)”. To me that really bugged me because I’m not thinking of IF I’ll be there next year; I’m in it for the long haul and if she’s not I feel it’s not fair to the kids. They’ve been through like 4 or 5 lead teachers since August. If I had any say I would HAPPILY be the lead teacher of that group.
3) When the children were in circle she was talking about their naptime beds(we call them mats) and she called them “Cots”. One of the kids said. “They’re not cots, they’re mats.” In a very normal voice. So my co-worker goes “Don’t back talk me or you’ll end up on the fence outside.”(Which means that they have to stand by the fence for a set amount of time. This is normally a LAST resort to get a child to listen). I feel this was wrong because she wasn’t back talking! She was explaining what they’re used to their beds being called.
4) In many other centers I’ve been in I’ve noticed that MANY times lead teachers have this attitude of “I’m the lead teacher so we’re going to do what I want to do all the time even if the kids don’t’ want to do it.” This really irritates me and the lady I’d been working with BEFORE this co-worker was hired and I worked fine together. We would come up with ideas for the kids together and she listened to offers that I had suggested or we would discuss ideas for projects for the kids. I feel this was the best way for a class to run because she and I see things differently in the children and cooperating together can make the learning much more fun instead of a “I’m the lead teacher and we do things my way” type of attitude. Well this new lead teacher doesn’t listen to ANY ideas I have, and contradicts me in front of the children(like I told one girl it was ok that she helped me clean something up and the lead teacher went ‘No, she needs to do this.’ Instead of saying it that way she could have said. “Actually, I told her that she needs to do this or this.” And it wouldn’t have come off so rude.)
5) She’s always comparing OUR school to her OLD schools and other schools. That really irritates me because like children no schools are alike! I LOVE this school because it is so open and welcoming compared to some centers that I’ve worked in before. I didn’t WANT to work at some of the other schools that she was talking about because they’re so strict in everything-and I mean EVERYTHING. I had one lady I interviewed with before that told me at one of the centers she had spent more time washing her hands-per their rules- than she spent with the children.
I don’t want to seem like I’m seeing only the bad in the new teacher but I do not feel that she is the type of person that we’re looking for for this position. In my mind I pictured someone who was more…happy and go-with the flow type of person with the kids and listens to what others have to say. This lady, it seems because she has almost 30 years of experience doesn’t want to hear anything from anyone who’s younger than her and it really in all honesty pisses me off but I bite my tongue for the kids. I don’t want them to see an argument between teachers in front of them.

What would you do if you were in my situation? I’ve got one co-worker I talk to about these issues as she had similar issues herself(at least the people being rude to her part) before and she knows that it can be hard to have issues and no one to talk to. I’ve thought about bringing this up to my boss but I don’t know exactly how to do it and I don’t want to seem like I’m trying to get this lady fired I just…don’t feel she’s the right fit for the group. She’s got some good ideas but…she’s not who I feel would fit best for the kids.

Hello everyone! My name is Tasha, I've been drawing off and on for a few years. My inspiration mostly comes from God and from nature. I'm a college graduate and am working on finding work as a pre-school assistant and work my way up to a teacher. I'm a huge anime fan, as well as a Crime show addict and my current obsessions have jumped around from one thing to the next. :) I'm also firmly planted in my faith.[No I'm not "religious". Anyone can be religious about anything. I am strong in my faith and my relationship with God.] My church has been an amazing part of my life, they are what's kept me going through some of the hardest times of my life. This past year God helped me get over a major fear of mine as I flew cross country to go to a friend's wedding and see my Goddaughter for the first time. I wouldn't have been able to do it without God on my side. I'm a very open person and very friendly, I will respect you even if you don't respect me(That's how Jesus was). But don't think I'll let you walk all over me. I will defend myself and my faith should the occasion arise.

One day every knee will bow before God. God's already beaten the devil at his own game, the devil has no power anymore he's just trying to steal those who are unable/unwilling to see the love of God. I will pray that one day God opens your heart and your mind.

Hello I am promoting my Christian Book series Seekers,

Seekers tells the story of Wilfride Beth Carter, a child born of  evil's fire destined to become queen of Hell however things don't go as planned when she is born with a powerful Ice God has given her, an Ice so cold she can freeze the air you breathe.   No one knows

why God has chosen the daughter of death(Cryptimus) to carry this power.   All they do know is, She has made up her mind and is choosing to follow him for not only has given a gift everyone wants but also has shown her things no one can explian.   Leaving everything

she ever knew behind, she sets off to begin in an era of Tribulation.
