We have been back for less than a week and already it has been dreadful, I even had my first cry! The behaviour seems to have got worse but it's not just me saying this, all the teachers are saying the same across the school. I can 'put up' with the bad behaviour and abuse, as I deal with everyday but I can't deal with the good children being a nightmare. I share a top set class who last lesson practically ignored me and acted as if I wasn't there. My HOD came in at the end as I was keeping them behind and the pupils decided to announce that they hate me, all I do is make them copy out and that they only work well with the other teacher. This really hit a nerve especially as they said this to my HOD who I imagine is now judging me. It wouldn't matter so much but they are a GCSE class and have an exam in january. They did a practice test for my topic and their results were awful and quite a few failed. However in the other teachers unit they all got grades A-D. This must reflect so badly on me, I feel dreadful now and I am so worried. I have tried my best for them and the whole thing has ruined my weekend. I normally perform my best with KS4 classes and I don't want to be bigheaded but I have had so many children tell me how much they like the way I teach and helped them understand but that's not the case in this school. I am obviously going to be doing revision with them but I don't know how I am going to face them now that they have admitted hating me.
