o There could just be bad chemistry between the foreign teacher and others.
o Some co-workers may be having an off day or week.

o The foreign teacher may be horrible to work with.

I'm closing out my first year teaching ESL in Busan, South Korea. I've been really blessed to have a great group of people to work with at my school. However, not all teachers can say the same thing. Many foreign teachers struggle with their relationships with staff and students and there are many reasons why this could be happening.
