Hello, I am new to this forum and This is my first year as a teacher. I am working at a charter school and teaching 8th grade science, 10 grade chemistry and 11th grade science. I am a soft teacher, I have no voice projection. The 10 and 11th graders are wonderful. I having trouble with the management of my 8th grade class. This is the first week of school and I've only seen this class twice. The class has 34 students and we are in a very tight small class room. I cannot move in between the rolls nor can I arrange the room in any other way, there is no room. I don't think the students are rude, they don't say mean things nor do they swear, they ignore me. They talk all hour and If I try to speak they'll talk louder. I have a para pro in the room with me and they also, do not listen to her. I've spoken to another teacher who told me to use incentives. I brought jolly ranchers as an incentive for a trivial game. some students were interested, but most students did not. I did a seating chart and it was an awful experience. The students were all over the place and still not sitting in their assign seats. They don't have Id's I can't learn any names. I'm just really stressed out. I can't teach anything if this class remains this way. Please give me some advice on what I can do.
