Hi all! I would love your feedback and advice... I am finishing my first year as a kindergarten teacher previously I was an inclusion co-teacher (mainly supporting classroom teachers). I am seriously regretting my decision to move to classroom teacher. This was something I dreamt about doing since I can remember, but ended up doing sped because there was a job available and I needed a job at the time. I have had a very hard year in terms of classroom management and behavior. This is clearly not my strong suit. I am soft spoken and truly love teaching and children...meaning I am not even a little scary. I work in an urban school setting and it has been a struggle for me, to the point where I am thinking of seeking other employment or returning to sped. I feel that I am a great teacher for academics but can not get the behavior management down. My questions: How much a difference would switching to a suburban school district make (if I could find a position)? Should I just go back to sped?? If I am stuck in this position again next year.. What on earth can I do to improve myself for next year??? I have tried just about every management plan, I give consequences, I give rewards, I am firm and try to be consistent, I use a clip chart, I involve parents... The students are just not respectful towards me and I KNOW it's something about me that's triggering this. Any help is so appreciated.. I am literally at my wit's end and there is still another month of school! Thank you!
