I went back to subbing a little earlier than planned and took my first assignment last Friday afternoon. The first class, Environmental Bio, class was okay, but the class after it, a Chem/Phys class of freshman, was absolutely horrible. I was honest with them upfront and told the kids as long as they respected me, I'd respect them and boy, did they throw the whole respect thing right out the window!!! For the entire class, all these kids did was act jerky on me. They refused to listen, went after each other with rulers, wrestled, wandered around the classroom, and even walked out on me several times. In fact, I was kind enough to let some kids go to the library top study during the second 45 minutes of class as long as they reported back before the end of the day. A few were kind enough to return, but I never heard from the others. It really got under my skin because I was trying to be nice, which is why I was really upset when most of the remaining kids told me they had to go for track or baseball stuff and then walked right on out the door on me!!! Looking back at all this, I'm still in a bit of shock because the kids with D113 are normally good kids who give me ZERO problems so I just couldn't understand why I was experiencing this kind of "grief" from them. I love this district and was happy they placed me back on the sub list. However, I've become a bit worried they'll drop me and never call me again. So, I'm open for any thoughts, comments, or advice from others as to what I should've done better to handle the class and if I should call the district [about this] to find out what's what and where I stand or if I should simply sit back and wait to see if they call me again.
