Hello, I feel I'm massively failing as a teacher. I went back to teaching 3 days a week after finishing maternity leave at the end of February. I am an inexperienced teacher and had only been responsible for a class for 5 months prior to my maternity leave. I have been put in a very challenging year 4 class who have had a number of teachers this year. Some teachers have left others refuse to teach them. The behaviour in the class is horrendous (chair throwing,angry outbursts, arguments and fights are not uncommon) and disrespect is high (I get called all many of offensive names). Many of the children refuse to listen to me and talk over instruction making it increasingly difficult to teach and I feel the children are not learning. Some of the children tell me they hate me. I've tried many different strategies to improve the class but I feel it just keeps getting worse. The stress and anxiety of teaching the class makes me not want to be there. Any suggestions on things that may help?
