I am a first year teacher, teaching remedial English to 9, 10, and 11th graders. I got the reputation for being easy after my first semester, but I plan to kick it up a couple notches in Jan! I only wrote 2 people up my first semester (I liked to deal w/ behavior probs myself..) but this semester I am not going to have the patience to deal w/ everything..I'm going to be STRICT. I need advice!!!
