I feel a rush when I hold students accountable for their behavior. In my first few years, I used to be afraid of doing it or feel bad, but now when I do it I just feel a weight lifted off of my chest like "Yes! I did good teacher-y stuff!" I haven't had that feeling for a while since my students mostly behave (since they know they have to deal with me every day), but I've had some students outside of my class who have decided it's hilarious to yell my first name as I pass by PE. The PE teachers don't do anything about it, so it becomes my responsibility to hold them accountable. I pin-pointed every one and gave them a lunch detention. I pulled them out one by one out of class to inform them of this. After doing it, I feel so good! At this point of the year, we get kids like this trying to get away with what they can. And they think because I don't know them that I won't spend the time to figure out their names and who they are and make them accountable for their behavior. But ooooh yes I did. And aren't they sorry? Does anyone else get this rush?
