    I subbed for a teacher today that has a rowdy class at the end of the day. This one kid is typically good for me, but as the year has drawn closer to the end, he’s been acting out. Last week when I was in for this teacher, I had to kick him out.

    Today, at the start of class, I saw him walk in and subtly said, “Come out with me in the hall.”

    I basically told him what I expect and what the consequences would be. I told him that I really like him as a student and know he knows how to behave, but I also let him know I wouldn’t tolerate poor behavior.

    He was awesome the whole class AND did his work. I was so proud.

    At the end of the year, students simply need one-to-one conversations to redirect them and motivate them to continue working hard. Honestly, teachers need it too.
    It is the end of the year and work is becoming more of an inconvience for even the best of students.
