I know hate is a strong word, but have you ever had a class that you dreaded heading to each morning and would never want to experience again? I know a few years ago I had a class that I very strongly disliked. There were a handful of boys who were quite loud and obnoxious and were constantly making immature comments across the room to one another, disrupting lessons, and would talk back to me at times. There were also a few girls that had "snotty" attitudes and would roll their eyes at me and just be rather unpleasant. Not to mention a general apathetic attitude from a lot of the students who just couldn't be bothered to put much effort into their work or prepare for tests. Even though it could have been worse and they weren't out of control, I found it very discouraging because I was still a fairly new teacher (my third year) and it was my first year teaching at the high school level. I put so much time and effort into my plans for each day, and to have a class that could be so disrespectful and blatantly not care really got to me at times. I had a few breakdowns at home because I was so frustrated and discouraged, and I would dread going in to work a lot of days. It made me realize that I much prefer the younger grade levels, which is where I've been teaching ever since.
