I have 17 6th graders for PE/Health and there are 9 of them that are rude disrespectful and refuse to follow directions. I have taught classroom procedures over and over, making a social contract and have them fill out think sheets about their behaviors. The principal says that I have poor classroom management and wants me to observe other teachers. Over the 25 years I have been teaching this is the lst time that a principal has told me I need help with classroom management. The art specialist is also having a difficult time managing them. They think they are in charge and when I try to report the defiant behavior I am evaluated on it and called into office stating that I need help that it is not the kids that it is me. It is a know fact that these 6th graders are out of control.
students are unruly, disrespectful and they have joined together to refuse to participate principal blames teacher for their behavior.
