    Right?! Like when I sub and the teachers are like ''oh that class,'' ''good luck.'' And I go in there and they're kittens compared to my class last year. :rofl:But for some teachers ''behavior'' issues include scoffing and rolling eyes. That's ''too much '' for them. Well... when you have a kid who gets on top of another kid and breaks his nose, THAT'S a problem!

    I've been perusing this thread since it started and shall finally contribute:

    It makes me wonder just what my school's suspension rate is. I had two kids suspended this year for a day or so each and I didn't bat an eye at it. They broke Big Rules, that was the consequence. Yeah, it's an inner-city school, but it doesn't seem so bad. Perhaps it does have a seemingly high suspension rate, but that's different from expulsion and at least consequences are happening regularly.

    An aside to the OP's intent of this thread, I couldn't agree more to student disrespect and destruction of school property! Or just anyone else's property!! From my perspective, the most disrespectful students that I dealt with last year broke my stuff! Took dry erase markers apart, cracked the caps and the barrels... just had complete disregard for other people's belongings. I can never fully understand why students would do something like that. :(

    Because some kids are just angry with no morals or regard for others. Many lack boundaries at home and this manifests in the classroom whether the parents model that behavior.

    Let me remind A to Z members of the house rules: see http://forums.atozteacherstuff.com/index.php?threads/inappropriate-post-report-dont-respond.198718/.

    If one is too new a member to see the "Report" link at the bottom of the post, no worries: trust me that, if the post truly is offensive, some other member will report it (as in fact another member has done in this case).

    Posts that quote moderated material get moderated themselves simply to ensure that the objectionable material doesn't appear at all.

    I'll add that A to Z Forums may not be the right community for everyone. If the tone and approach here turns out not to suit a particular member's style, there's no reason not to move on.

    I went to the interview and the people I talked to seemed really nice. I didn't get a chance to look around too much but I would probably lean towards taking the position if it were offered. Only thing is I'm still waiting for responses from so many districts that pay at least 5k more than this one...

    One of the kids did ask for my number as I was leaving the school, so I guess that's one of the behavioral issues I'd have to learn to deal with

    I'm sure on the outside you were incredibly polite, while on the inside..

    Do you look young? In Jr. High when I was a youngster, a teacher moved midyear. I went to biology and saw a new girl. Then, new girl addressed the class, explained she had been asked out three times that day and we needed to knock it off, she was married with a kindergartener, and to get ready for the lesson. She cut her hair a few days later to look older.

    Yes, but not Jr. High young! I think most kids just do that type of stuff to get a reaction. I've been mistaken for a high schooler when subbing there though. I need to figure out a way to look more authoritative!

    Without more evidence it's difficult to say what that number means. It may reflect an administration that is listening to its teachers instead of sending problem kids back to the classroom. I wish my previous school had a suspension rate that truly reflected the behavior issues. If the problems are there but on paper everything looks normal, how does anything get fixed?

    Dressing professionally helps. A skirt suit outfit like the ones below might be worth investing in.
