When I first started at the center I worked at, I was really young, completely inexperienced and had very little initiative (with a great work ethic, once I knew what was expected though!). My co-teacher trained me, and had a very diplomatic approach to get my butt in gear. She'd say things like "Well, it's almost nap time. Do you want to do the potty routine or get out the cots?" or "It's time to head outside. What do you feel like today -- coats or shoes?". Always with a smile and a friendly tone of voice.

She actually kind of made me feel like I was equal to her in position when I wasn't really.

Point being, sometimes it's easier to attract bees with honey . It might be worth a try, since the only other real option (besides quitting) is putting up with her laziness .
