Hello.. Just wanted some thoughts on what others would do in this situation. I was previously a kinder teacher for a few years, I moved across the state and now am working as a classroom aide hoping a teaching position will open up in this district. I thought I would relish the break from being "in charge" and on all the time as a teacher.. And I could just enjoy helping the students. However, the teacher I've been matched with has very little structure or routines or interesting lesson plans. It is a nice suburban town so most of the kids are good (big change for me!) but there are those 5 or 6 who are constantly acting out! She generally ignores the behaviors and just let's them do it. This is not what I would do! I don't feel like I should be in charge of behavior management but I do help a little. The students also know I'm not the main teacher and are not quite respectful. Would you all be more firm if that's how you are or just let the behaviors go? I honestly find a lot of their behaviors very rude.. And could not put up with it if I was in charge.. There were students who got prizes today and were just terribly behaved! Am I missing something??
