Find a Conversation

Well, there is a new teacher at our school. She is new to teaching as well as new to the school. She has done several things in the last few days that have really peeved me. Once she told me that I wasn't doing my job the way she thought it should be done. (and I didn't go to her for advice, this was unsolicited)
Another incident: I told one of my kids to do something a tiny bit out of the ordinary and this teacher told the child to do the exact opposite. When I explained my reasoning to the teacher, she said that it didn't matter that there were special circumstances, the child needed to do it HER way.
Third incident: during a conversation in the teacher's room, the teacher mentioned that she works longer every day than I do because she stays late. (Hello, I have a small child that needs picked up, and I do many hours of work at home)
Any tips for dealing with this newbie? I feel like, now that she has a job and her license, she thinks she knows everything! Do I ignore her? Am I being way too sensitive here?
