Hello everyone, I am new here as well as in the teaching field. I have just completed my student teaching and now I am subbing in the same district where I student taught. I really like the district, but the kids are tough. Many come from troubled homes and have serious behavior problems in school. Today was my first day subbing. I was so happy and excited to begin. They started me in a Kindergarten class. I thought it was going to go wonderfully; the teacher had left me complete lesson plans and I quickly discivered where everything is kept. But then the kids came in. They were so loud all day. I had to literally yell over them to get them to quiet down for a couple minutes. I thought I was doing something wrong at first, but then other teachers told me that it is the worst behaving kindergarten class. Lucky me!! Everytime I turned around someone else was out of their seat and they wouldn't stop hitting each other. I had two injuries, both complete accidents, but that still doesn't make me look good. Everyone had a stomach ache and wanted to go to the nurse too! Does anyone have any advice for a new substitute on how to control a situation such as this? Thank you so much!!
