Hi! This is not the first time I post this problem but... I feel like I am totally desperate and I feel a failure. I am a NQT teacher, teaching Spanish and French (subjects that are not usually very popular as most of the students don't see the point of learning a language as English is spoken everywhere) and managing behaviour is not my strength. I work in a difficult school, classified as "require improvement" by ofsted and one of the reason I decided to work there is because I thought it would be a very good learning experience, however I am feeling that instead of learning, I am failing. The reason why I feel like that is because I feel unable to control my year 9 group. I was hoping by now they would be used to me and we could have a rapport, but it is getting worse and worse and specially now when they have made their choices and more than 60% are not doing Spanish GCSE so they don't see the point of behaving. It is a difficult group with one student that take drugs, another one in managed move and another one really aggressive to the point I thought she was going to beat the TA. I feel myself unable to teach, unable to control them and I can't even do tests properly! as I can't control them I can't do speaking assessments o listening assessments. And I have tried everything; following behaviour´s policy, rewards, an attempt of a fun lesson, videos, etc. The worse part is when "good students" blame me because I can't control the group. One of them wrote in his book "how am I going to learn if you don't control the group?", another one told me that he decided not to do Spanish GCSE because he didn't enjoy Spanish lessons anymore and in parents evening some parents were asking me what I was doing to teach their children.... And I went home and I felt defeated. The thing is that I think I am a relatively good teacher. I have 9 groups and I only have problems with year 9... of course other groups are difficult as well but not like year 9 and I am afraid that we have reached a point in which we hate each other, I hate them and they hate me but it is painful to see the frustration faces of those who want to learn and if I don't give up is for them, but it is so frustrated to spend hours planning lessons that I might not even be able to deliver.... Honestly, I don't know what to do.
