Hi, I am a first grade teacher. I have a student in my class who is physically hurting me and other students on a daily basis. He hits students at LEAST 10 times a day and at least 1 or 2 times a week he will seriously beat other children up. And by that, he will choke students, put them in a head lock, punch them in the head face repeatedly, etc.. like full blown serious assaulting fights. I know last year when this student was in Kindergarten he kicked a classmate in stomach so hard that the child was out of school for a week. He beat up the teacher's aide so bad, that she was in the hospital and out for several weeks! He hit his teacher several times and he beat up a male teacher as well. This year, in addition to seriously hurting students, he is hurting me. It started with him just pushing me or hitting me or slapping me, but lately he has been grabbing me by both my arms and physically restraining me. Today, he grabbed me, pushed me, and took his bookbag and hit me over the head repeatedly. I have a large bump on my head as a result. It is getting ridiculous. I have talked to the principal regularly and he is aware and concerned, but hasn't really done anything. I have talked to his parents almost daily and they aren't very supportive. They don't offer much help and they seem to be in denial and often blame what he does on myself or other teachers. Is there anything else I can do? Last year, he was even evaluated by the district's psychologist and they didn't do anything. I am seriously concerned for myself and my students. He never does his work either and he is pretty much just a constant disruptness. He isn't learning and I know he is going to fall far behind as well. Nothing seems to work. He will be suspended and the day he comes back, he will go right back to what he is doing. I am constantly stopping class every 2 or 3 minutes to address a behavioral issue with him. My behavioral management plan does not work for him and anytime he is scolded or anything he just says "so what" or "who cares". I really feel like he should be in some sort of alternative setting, but I'm not getting much support and I don't know what to do. Any advice at all???
