Used to be, every time I consulted my superiors about behavior problems in my class, they'd tell me that I need to do more exciting, interactive lessons. It got so frustrating that I all but stopped asking them anything. So they started offering that advice unsolicited. I CAN'T STAND IT! I feel so pressured and lesson planning is even more of a nightmare than usual because I feel like nothing is good enough, keep searching and thinking until the wee hours for something better... Even if I try not to let the pressure affect me or my lessons, it's there somewhere... Just for the record, my problems are not due to the monotony of my lessons. Besides for doing my utmost to make them exciting, interesting, and interactive (which is a tall order because of my kids' special needs, coupled with my lack of resources) my kids have REAL behavior issues. I have one with serious ADHD and sensory issues, one with symptoms of autism, and one with bipolar. If you tell me that their acting up in class is because I'm not managing them well enough, fine, I'll accept that -- tell me what to do different. But I refuse to accept that my kids are acting up and not paying attention because I'm not exciting enough for them. Dear admin, GO HIRE A CLOWN!
