How can a teacher have the authority to move a teacher assistants

This answer was rated:

How can a teacher have the authority to move a teacher assistants desk and personal belongings without prior consent from the TA ? I know it's her classroom and she can arrange the room like she wants to.But does this include another adult's property? We conferenced with the principal and the she said: She had the right to arrange room like she wants, but she had to consider the TA's feeling also. When approached about moving the desk somewhere else the TA Was in agreement but not the teacher. Several positions were given to her (TEACHER) BUT she refused all suggestions . Everytime she would say :" I like it where it is." I don't like the position it's in now. I don't feel safe where I am. It's right at the door. When someone comes in they're right on me before I realize it. Help !!!!!
This is not a legal issue, it is an internal matter to be addressed between teacher and TA. In general, the teacher controls her class room. See if you can file a grievance if you can demonstrate actual danger.
