I am an experienced teacher who has worked in a variety of primary schools within a variety of different catchment areas and a number of behaviour problems. Previously I have managed behaviour well, only raising my voice on a few occasions. However I started at a new school and am experiencing problems I never have before, I raise my voice every day, I have tried the schools reward and sanction system but nothing is working. I have to say it's only the same 4 children. I hate shouting, I don't think it serves a purpose (except to get attention). The type of behaviour I am getting is things that I don't normally get riled about, things like screwing up sheets that have been given out because 'you won't help me', refusal to work with partner that I have assigned, talking whilst on the carpet, contratidicting me. Silly things really that i would usually ignore, remind children how to behave and move on. I suppose I really want advice into how I can break the cycle and get back to how I used to be.
