How do you deal with this? I teach second grade and my kids repeatedly ask me to go see their first grade teacher. All the time. We were coming in from recess and the first grade classes were going out. One of my students asked me if she can give her first grade teacher a hug. I said no. She went and did it anyway. They ask me if they can give her a hug/say hi whenever they see their teacher (every single time they see her in the hallway or at recess), they ask if they can go see her when they get work done, they ask if they can spend the entire day in her classroom, etc. It's constant all day 24/7 that they ask. And it prevents me from getting teaching done. One student in my class is allowed to see one of the first grade teachers twice a day, not his but one he has a close bond with because it's part of his behavior program. The other students see this and it's making the asking to see their first grade teacher questions worse. And they probably wonder if he can do it, why can't I? Maybe they don't understand this as they're just kids but it's very hurtful and very disrespectful to me. This has never happened to me before where the kids constantly 24/7 ask to see their teacher from last year. And I'm about done with it. I don't feel loved or respected by this class (not just this but other things too). Rough year so far and I don't see it getting any better. I need the money though and there aren't any other permanent postings right now, only temporary. And that won't pay the bills. Has anyone experienced kids being so disrespectful and constantly asking to go see their teacher from last year all day, every day? I'm telling the kids how disrespectful it is tomorrow and they will walk 5 minutes of their recess per each time they ask. There has to be a consequence for it or they won't ever stop.
