Hi all, I am heartbroken today.I think today was the worst day of my career. I've been teaching for 3 and a half years and have had a few issues with behaviour,but nothing more than run of the mill really. Today 4 boys in my extremely weak year 10 class pushed me so far that I cried in the lesson. (This has never happened to me before). I have been crying on and off since the lesson (at 1 today).They swore, verbally abused me, completely disrespected me and their intention was to make me cry. (Again,have never experienced this) Eventually the boys ran away (literally ran out of school!) The deputy head had come to the room, but the boys had gone by then. Usually I can cope with whatever is thrown at me,but I was feeling low already today and I felt like prey. The worst thing is the deputy head simply passed this back to the pastoral manager and he didn't even speak to the boys himself. I feel so unsupported by SMT and I don't know how to face back into my class tomorrow...Sorry for rambling on, but I just really needed to vent somewhere.
