When I started teaching, I was at a school for about a month before getting transferred to my current location due to low enrollment. At the first school, I had a rough bunch of kids that had continuous subs for about 3 months. There was a particular girl that tried to make my life miserable. She was always rude, disrespectful, and tried to get under my skin. Fast forward a year and a half, that girl has moved and is once again in my class. Luckily, she is in the class with the group of kids I have had since they were freshmen (I'm very close to this group of students). I consider myself very mild mannered and most of my students adore me. However, I feel my blood start to boil at the sight of this girl. I snapped at her the other day and my aide later told me that she heard her say that she was going to make my life miserable just like she did at the other school. I want to be proactive with this student. I never made any mention that I remembered her and I treated her like all of the other new students. Does anyone have any tips to deal with this student? I have no problem calling home or writing her up but I do try to use those things sparingly. Please help. I feel like I'm giving this girl too much power over me.
