I have been a sub in a few schools (some had a reputation as being rough). Normally I have no problems with student conduct and can bring a class under control. But today I had a couple of classes that really made me question humanity. The moment the bell rang for the students to come in they began to come into the room yelling, excited to see a sub, dancing around, and even climbing on counters. I spoke up for them to take their seats and remain quiet. But there was not even a show that they acknowledged I was even in the room. So I began to follow my discipline plan (a 5 step plan including warnings, extra work, and eventually being sent to the office). Before the first 10 minutes had gone by I had already sent 3 students to the office, told some to sit in different seats (which they refused), and given warnings of having the principle come to the room to remove some. Nothing I said or did mattered to them and they continued blatant defiance, to the point of walking out of the room, and even made threats against my physical person and my job. One student even took their cell phone out to call their mom and faked tears telling her mother I had cussed her out (which was completely false since I remained as professional as I could). Eventually several students were removed by the administrator and put into other rooms. There only remained about 5 students in the room by the end of class. Then the next class came in and began the same thing. I asked the administraitor to either have someone sit in the class for a while with me (since the students became quiet with him), or to remove those who were acting the same way. I was told that it was my fault that the students were acting this way and that if I couldn't handle it they would need to find someone else. So after seeing that I had no support I said they needed to find someone else. At which point I was ordered to get my things, leave, and that I would never be allowed back at the school in front of the students. Then he walked out and left me to get my things and walk out with no one in the class to oversee them. Now I believe the students listened to him because he had the actual authority to suspend and give full discipline. But they knew all I could do is send them to him. Ok...enough back story. Here is my question. If the students refuse to even acknowledge you are there and don't care about being disciplined (since they even asked me to send them to the office), what can a sub do? All I knew to do was get the admin to help in that situation...but what do you do when they refuse to do anything?
