Good Evening Parents,
My title tells the way I felt today. I spent almost the entire day dealing with conflict and conflict resolution in my classroom. Parents, I am at my wits end as far as the behaviour exhibited by some of the students of my class are concerned and I am pleading your assistance. I have never had these behavioural problems to deal with before, so I am having a challenging time dealing with the constant arguing, fighting and outright disobedience by students.
I am quite aware of the rights of the child but right now it is beginning to feel as though the teacher has no rights. I know that many of these behaviours need to be “nipped in the bud”, so I want you guys to jump on board and assist me with this problem.
Parents please talk to your children about the expected behaviours at school. No hitting, no fighting, no abusive language is allowed. Encourage your child to be kind and thoughtful. Encourage him/her to obey the first time an order is given. This would make the classroom a nicer and more productive place.
Thanking you in advance,
