Does anyone have any suggestions to help me not feel so weird about walking around the room and monitoring my students? It feels unnatural to me to walk around my students while they are working, so I usually remain seated at my desk, at a student desk, or perched behind the lectern. Constantly walking when I don't have anything to hand out or a task to direct them to do feels weird. This happens mostly in testing situations, where the students are just sitting quietly and working. I've been told that I need to walk around; it's part of classroom management, but I feel so odd while doing it. I have students who like to make obnoxious bodily function noises, and I feel like if a kid wants to make a joke at my expense, I'm a prime target when I walk around and get too close to them. I guess I should also mention that I have, or am strongly suspected of having, Autism Spectrum Disorder, and social anxiety might be part of the package. I'm also just not assertive and am very easily made uncomfortable in social situations. I guess that's a weird thing to be worried about, but I have a habit of imagining worst case scenarios...and not being taken seriously is honestly a concern of mine.
