I know it's the last few days of my possible last year in this career, so the advice will probably just be "let it go", and I probably will, but I'm curious as to how others would deal with this. I have a student who has been super negative, often rude and disrespectful (really this could describe most of my teenagers though) all year. She likes to make little comments that aren't overtly disrespectful but you can tell that there is disrespect behind it. Just recently, she heard that I had proposed to my BF from another student and she said "Oh, Mr. _____ has b*lls. I didn't think you did!" I usually ignore her little jabs and barbs. This time I just laughed and said "What a lovely back-handed compliment." She often tries to give me "tips" for being a "better teacher", like telling me that I should be making my class more fun like Ms. so-and-so does because my class is boring. In another class, a student who I've had respect problems with all year has resorted to muttering things under his breath or complaining to his pals since he's learned that overt disrespect is met with consequences such as referrals and admin meetings. He picks on anything he can like typos that might be present in materials I've gotten from other teachers to use in my class and complains about them under his breath. I just ignore him. At this point in the year there's probably not much I could do. How would you deal with these students? It's usually a few repeat offenders so I try to balance appearing to be singling them out with being tough on disrespect.
