Im a 3rd year 2nd grade teacher and this class has been my worst. The first 1/3rd of the year wasn't perfect but my students were learning and making progress. Around a month ago something shifted and things have spiraled out of control. My students are fighting every day and no longer listen to me at all. I spend most of my day keeping students from hurting each other. I've read so many articles and classroom management books. I've tried so many things including lessons on resolving conflicts, using manners, and respecting classmates. I've tried starting over like it's the first day. I know it all stems from their lack of respect for me. Ive made so many mistakes and I don't know what else to try. Parents are getting sick of me calling but all everyone keeps telling me to do is to keep calling.
