The beginning of the year was fine. However, since Christmas break ended, I have been very stressed with my class. I teach at a low-income school, and I have "that class" this year. The whole school knows it, and my principal shares in my frustration. Detention doesn't work. Getting to know them doesn't work. Incentives don't work. Meetings with parents don't work. Desk rearrangements don't work. I have about four students who are extremely rude and pretty much rotate in the office each week. Most of the time, I have to send at least one student to the office and one in the hallway to keep my sanity for an hour. Office visits don't normally resolve anything. The four feed off of each other. Two of them got into a physical fight a couple of days ago when I had a substitute. I keep telling myself that I only have a few months left. I have lost my motivation to teach. I find myself pulling out novels after novels to just read for pleasure with the class because it seems to be the only time those students will be respectful. I just feel like I'm not accomplishing anything, and I feel for the students who do try. I just can't think of any resolutions. I've recently started anxiety medication, and I'm 100% confident it's due to this school year. I know I sound dramatic, but I really need some advice on what to do with those four students.
