Poke the bear!
Have you ever felt fearful or anxious about dealing with an aggressive or challenging supervisor, colleague, parent or student?
It's no secret that the teaching profession comes with a lot of confrontation from difficult people whether it be parents, students, colleagues or leaders. Learning how to deal with these difficult people at work and uncomfortable situations is an essential skill to have and can boost work satisfaction immensely as these difficult people add to what is already a very stressful job.
The TPAA is hosting a live webinar (SOLD OUT) which will be very informative providing strategies and techniques to deal with these people. It will also be interactive and allow teachers to ask any questions they may have.
Join Tracy Tully - an award-winning international speaker and TPAQ's secretary - to talk about the following difficult people you may have to deal with in your job:
- Difficult colleagues
- Difficult kids
- Difficult parents
- Difficult leaders
Tracy will be talking about her buckle up fear - 3 steps to work out how you can position yourself with influence and authority with these difficult people.
Tracy’s education career spanned 38 years holding Primary and High School Principal positions across Queensland from the far North to the south. During this time, Tracy yearned for a modern teachers’ union without the industrial age attitudes, that catered for employees versus employees without bias or politics.

Here's what our members are saying
Tracy has been extremely helpful as she honestly wants to help those who need assistance in obtaining a fair workplace. She understands situations and has incredible knowledge. I am very lucky and am confident of a favourable outcome.
To Whom It May Concern, I would like to thank you for helping me out back in May with a spot of bother at work - especially Kathleen Campbell (one of your independent consultants) who was fantastic. She was so supportive and provided me with all the information I needed to resolve the issue. While it was very stressful I felt like she was so knowledgeable that it was a relief to have her with me at my meeting.
The support officer was understanding of my situation and was able to offer personal and professional support of the highest level. She was able to direct me to additional services that resulted in a fair and positive result to my concern.
I had some issues related to class observation procedures and I contacted TPAQ. They were extremely fast at getting in touch with me and Tracy, the union representative I was assigned, was really very helpful and competent. She also called me to discuss the issues and we decided the best strategy to tackle the issue. We exchanged emails and she got back to me with useful information. I am extremely grateful for her fast, competent and supportive assistance. Great service, and very committed staff. Thank you, Tracy :-)
You had all the answers to my questions, did not let me deviate from the path we agreed on, provided me with a letter of reply for my employer and last but not least kept me on an even keel at a time of extreme stress. A VERY big thank you to all that helped me.
How will we benefit you:
Support whenever you need it: TPAA provides professional indemnity insurance, along with personalised advice and legal assistance, to quickly resolve any workplace issues. You can have peace of mind, all the time.
We are constantly working on improving work conditions: TPAA helps and advises working teachers to openly negotiate enterprise agreements, with a focus on practical outcomes in each workplace.
A choice in representation: Only teachers – not the government – should choose who represents and protects them. This means all TPAA teachers – not union officials – have a real say in the running of the education system. It's time to challenge the status quo.
We put teachers' interests first: Focusing on students and learning – not on paperwork. By reducing administration, we aim to let teachers ‘teach again’. Any savings should be passed on as pay rises to teachers not funding administration/HR.
Price: We are approximately 50% cheaper than alternative unions with better service and the same protection.
