Maybe it's my positive upbeat nature, perhaps my soft voice, then again it could also be I don't know what discipline looks like. Honestly, I wasn't a perfect angel, but I don't recall ever having serious discussions with my teachers and I know that I was never sent to the office.
That said, I have one hour of the day that is my kryptonite. Things that have worked for most other situations are failing miserably with this tough group. What I am looking for is a site or a set of videos where I can see what disciplinary actions look like in action. What do those serious conversations sound like? How does another teacher react to consistent interruptions? What do others do to put a stop to side conversations? If I could go back in time, I would have video taped my observations.
This may be the group that makes me a pro or makes me seek other options!
