    I teach middle school, and this year have noticed several students seem more immature. Not necessarily in a bad way, but in the way that I feel I am teaching a grade lower (which I taught for several years and loved.) I am thinking this is because of the pandemic. Most students in my school were hybrid last year until the last 3 months of school when they were in school 5 days a week. However, some of these students were virtual last year the entire year. Is anyone else noticing this immaturity in their students this year? Any other behaviors you notice as a result of pandemic teaching/ school reopening plans?

    Yes, they’re much more immature. The 6th graders seem like elementary kids. The 8th graders remind me of the 7th graders I used to teach.

    We have had a lot worse behavior out of our 8th graders. We are having to clamp down much harder this early in the year than I've ever seen. We usually have to get stricter in the spring. We have had fights, kids trashing bathrooms, kids bullying each other online. On top of the pandemic stuff, the beginning of the year has been pretty bad.
