I need help! I am a first year teacher and I started mid-year. My students are the most disrespectful bunch of kids that I have ever encountered. I have rules and consequences in place and they show no regard. I give out infractions, call parents, write referrals but it doesn't work. The kids are rowdy, loud, disrespectful. They talk all through class. I have put students out and the other students still behave the same way. The principal has to come to my class every day since I have been there. I am overwhelmed and am wondering what options I have. I would have to get observed and get bad marks for bad classroom management. I have talked to the other teachers and they tell me that they've acted that way all year, but I feel that there should be a little more order now that I'm there as a permanent teacher. Should I try whole class punishment? Should I just send all of my students to In-school suspension? Someone please help!
