I wrote an email to both super attendant and principal about my spouse and another teacher being unprofessional.The other teacher texted my spouse if I was still his lady while getting herself involved in matters that were not of her own.She also would text him pictures of her kids and tell him she buying him gifts.I texted the teacher asking her to please back off and that its not her place to asked If im still hi lady.I told her that's unprofessional and to please stay away from him since she is interrupting him during class time buy calling and texting as well as interrupting his class.They don't have the same lunch nor are they on the same grade team. I ended up reaching out to the principal and the super attendant but the principal told my spouse that she saw nothing wrong with it.She said that I'm a problem.The other teacher is married.I honestly have no intentions of causing any problems for anyone but just wanted this teacher and my spouse to be professional. I'm upset.

A: Unfortunately you have no rights when it comes to how your wife is treated at work, and the employer may, if it wishes, exclude you from activities at the school or even exclude you from campus altogether.

If your wife has an issue she should report it to the principal or the district HR department and let them handle it.

Good luck to you.
