I teach in an inner city school in the great state of Illinois. I am a first year teacher trying the best I can. I had a HORRIBLE day today and of course I got observed! I just feel like I have no support at all. I have three students who are constantly acting up. I was first told to never ignore their behaviors etc. so I would always put my class on hold and deal with them. Then today I was told to give them a consequence and then ignore them the rest of the time. I just feel so frustrated!! I want to do a good job. I just feel like saying just tell me what you want and I'll do it, but no one is consistent. I don't feel like I am cut out for a school like this at all. My last week of observation went great at least, but feeling so nervous about this one.
