I’m curious of how everyone would react to any of your students talking about you in front of you (looking at you, then each other, then you again, as they cover their hands to talk in secret and have a smirk on their face). I realize these girls aren’t fond of me so putting it all together, I know that’s what they were doing. They aren’t the kindest girls either. I just have a gaze at one of them to send an indirect “I’m on to you” message. I’m not sure if I should do anything else if it should happen again. I teach 5th grade. Nothing happened to warrant them to be badmouthing me, which if it did- I could understand! Lol. It was like they were LOOKING for it and did it for no reason.
