Hi there, So this is my first year teaching at a small school in Michigan. I teach art at the high school level and for the most part I'm loving my job. However in a few of my classes I have these students who just will not do any work or participate the entire semester. When I look at their grades they are all failing every class. one of them is even a senior who lives on his own, so I can't even contact the parents for support. It aggravates me to just watch them sit there on their phones EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. (We can't take them for legal reasons). I could send them to in school suspension but that won't help them. When I talk to them in class, they sit there stone face an give me no response. I just don't know if there's anything I can do to help them at this point, but I'd feel like a bad teacher if I don't at least try. It's frustrating too cause when I ask administration for support they just tell me to contact the parents, but it seems to have no effect. Is there nothing I can do at this point? There is only two months left of the school year, so they've already made their decisions to fail, but do I put up with it in my classroom?
