I am a first-year teacher and this past couple of weeks have been a nightmare. Every time I am observed my students are completely out of control. My principal refuses to come observe early in the day and comes in unannounced for formal observation The principal has come in and taken over my class using call and responses that my students have never even heard. I have worked really hard with two extremely difficult students this year and have been hit more than once by a student and little to nothing is being done about it. I have student unfocused and crawling around when I am trying to teach constant hitting despite numerous class meetings about touching, phone calls to parents, loss of privileges. The feedback I get from the principal is that I need to work on management but the principal does not discipline students I send with formal referrals and I am discouraged from writing them. I feel like the students who are referred know there is no consequences so the behavior continues. Calling home seems ineffective. What can I do to regain order next week. My students also are completely wild when I am gone and I've received the blame for it.
