First off I want to say I'm sorry for complaining, but I feel as if no one will hear me out with this bs. This site is the ONLY place that I get support. I started working at the school I am at in the beginning of January. I has been extremely tough. I thought it would get easier, but is hasn't at all. In fact, it has became more dangerous. For example, I had 2 students kick me and a few students break thermometers in half and threw them across my room. One of them nearly hit me. I constantly have students punching, choking, and biting each other. I write them up and NOTHING happens. I get told that the students are suspended, but in reality they are not. A few of my classes do not do anything fun. We read articles and complete worksheets. It is too dangerous for the other kids and myself to do experiments. Plus, the students totally disrespect me. I told the school that I am transferring next year. I could work with the kids, but since the administration doesn't have any consequences for behaviors (inappropriate/appropriate), the behaviors are getting worse. As a teacher, what are my rights if a student assaults me? I love teaching, but this school is driving me crazy! Again, thank you for all of your help!
