How can I handle a situation where a student keeps telling her mother that she doesn't want to be my class because she is afraid I am going to scream at her? I have bent over backwards to make her feel comfortable. The mother wants her moved to the other teacher's class. I came in Oct. to take a large class overload and I believe she just wants to go back into her first class to be with one of her best friends. I have never talked to or met her mother but the principal is considering moving her because this is the second request and she is afraid the parent will go to the service center. I have several behavior problems in this class and little support in the school so the atmosphere is tense for all of us at times. I guess I'm needing support from someone. There is much more to this story and this is by far the worse job I have ever had. The transition in Oct. was not handled well and the kids seemed traumatized by having been chosen to be the ones moved into my class. I have been dealing with the repercussions. Another student's mother tried to get her daughter moved from my room earlier in the year. This child has major issues is constantly taunting and verbally fighting with the other students often requiring my stern attention. She wasn't moved and eventually was put on meds because I consistently wrote her up and sent her out. I'm exhausted after dealing with issue after issue and trying to teach the test, monthly testing, and no support.
