Hello all I am relatively newish to teaching (NQT+2) and still get stressed by student behaviour, to the point where I am considering whether I am cut out for this. I do work with a challenging demographic and dread a good number of my lessons at the moment. Dreading tomorrow too and feel very worn out by it all. I report pupils but nothing seems to change despite the multiple detentions they sit. With many classes I cannot teach without slt in the room. I carefully plan and scaffold my lessons well. remain calm and don't engage with them if they want to argue, however I had to shout at all my classes this morning, if nothing else to attract attention of slt. I see the same pupils acting up for colleagues so it's not just me, however the pupils blatantly pick and choose who they behave for and it appears to be young female teachers like me who are worst affected. We have a system where sanctions are written down in a planner so pupils frequently snatch them away. I report this to HoY when this happens but the constant low level disruption is chipping away at me. The worst are the younger ones and I am concerned that this is a sign that things will get worse and not better. It seems pathetic to let them get to me like this but I feel under pressure to get results as well . Thanks for reading.
