Today, I had a rough day at a very good school, but with a very tough group of students. I am a substitute teacher, therefore I deal with misbehavior on a daily basis. I usually just try to get through the day and if nobody gets hurt I am happy. However, today my classes were extra loud and my attempts to quiet the students didn't help. I had teachers and administrators in and out of my room. I couldn't help but think about what was going through their heads. They probably though t I was completely aloof. Also, I feel like I disappointed some of the students that just wanted to do their work. I know I need to toughen up and get on them more. It is just tough for a sub because the students really don't respect me enough to just get quiet. Plus it is not my lesson and the work left for the students is typically just busy work that they get bored with and start acting up. Any advice for substitute teaching would be appreciated.
