As you might expect, my students' behavior has also started to reflect my poor planning skills. I don't really feel justified in writing them up, either, because every time I resort to doing that, my principal says something to me. There must be some other way to handle discipline "in house," but I'm not aware of what it is. Yep, I'm having a lot of problems that could be solved if someone would just communicate with me. I don't know how to ask questions, though, without coming off as incompetent. I feel like everyone expects me to have it together, because apparently teacher training in this area is better than the place where I graduated.
