I work in a middle school in a middle class community. The school is in the middle of the town. I have recently earned my teaching credential and work as a Intervention Aide. I love my job and enjoy the kids. The students I work with are 8th graders that will be graduating in a few months. My question is I have a student that has choosen to be disrespectful.I did take the student out of the class I T.A. for and begin discussing the issue. I have remided her that we are all to be respectful. She got angier and responded, "What if I dont want to be respectful?" I responded " Do you want detention?" The argument got much more heated. I am going to discuss this situation with the teacher, but I want to know. Can I help her to become respectful? I do know that she likes talking with her friends and likes to play in the band. I generally get along with the students. I will not ignore her disrespect because I am staff and belive everyone deserves to be treated respectfuly at all times. Questions, comments, concerns?
