if a student hits a teacher should it be the teachers fault or the students. I don't know what to do it is so stressful when you get put under all of that pressure.

        I have taught K for 17 years and PreK for 1 year. While hitting an adult is definitely wrong I have come to realize that some students act out because this is their first time away from mom and/or dad or the family members who care for them. They are afraid but don't have the skills to express that fear appropriately. I agree that seeking the help of the school counselor is a good thing to do. And I also understand that some TLC and adjustment time may also be in order.
