I just started a long term sub position at a title I school on Monday and I will be there for the rest of the year. This class is a handful (every teacher I've talked to has made some type of comment about this class). I'm learning so much everyday and I'm really excited about having this opportunity!! One of the many problems I'm having is kids not keeping their hands to themselves. I thought I would go crazy yesterday because I kept hearing..."So and So poked, pushed or tripped me". Most of the time I don't see what's going on so I'm not sure who to believe. These kids lie and want to cause trouble. How do I handle this??? I want to put it to a stop immediately. What do I do when I don't see what's happening and I don't know who to believe? These kids need to learn to keep their hands to themselves. I have started doing a community circle and we talked about mutual respect. During community circle yesterday I caught one kid poking another kid and he tried to deny it. I sent him to his desk with his head down.. If I can get through the next eight weeks and live to tell about it, I'll be able to handle any class I get when I get a full-time job!! :lol: Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!
