Hi all, I am just wondering what I can do in this situation. I have a 6th grade student who constantly disrespects me in class. I called his parents about it and they said he denied everything, but of course, they would talk to him about it. Afterwards, he got worse, even telling other students I called his parents and continuing to be disrespectful. He even said that I can keep calling his parents because they do not care if he misbehaves, although his parents SEEMED to care a lot about it when I called them. Anyway, I gave him a B- on a drawing assignment (I teach art) and he got upset and argued with me that he deserved an A. I asked him if he wanted a C instead, because that was the real grade, I was just trying to be nice to him, and he said whatever. So, I just said alright and gave him the C. Afterwards, he told me that he was going to take this to the principal. His next period, he asked his teacher how he can get me (specifically, he named me) fired and the teacher was shocked he would ask that so he brought it to my attention. Normally, I don't care what students say about me to other teachers, but this student is threatening my livelihood and knowing how he is, I don't want this becoming an issue. Should I bring this to the principals attention or the assistant principal? Should I tell his parents again that this was said? Or is there nothing I can do until he actually goes to the principal to make an accusation about me?
