Hi I'm looking for some advice on behaviour management. I teach a Year 2 class once a week and although I was aware of some "tricky/difficult" individuals in the class, I have found it very difficult to teach and maintain control in the classroom. I feel like they don't see me as the main class teacher and although they are young and I know they mean no harm, I still find it disrespectful. They constantly interrupt me when I am speaking/trying to teach, do not listen to/follow instructions and wind other classmates up. They are especially bad during PE as they run riot. I have tried to be calm and consistent with behaviour rewards/sanctions giving positive praise and points or giving warnings and explaining consequences if they do not listen/ follow what I say. I have tried waiting for them to be quiet and giving them "the look" but they don't care or respond to it. I am stumped! What am I doing wrong? I know not to take it personally but I can't help feel like I am terrible at getting the children to listen and pay attention without some sort of disruption. It's also getting to the point where, the nicer children are acting out/fed up of the "naughty" ones and can sense I am not in control. Other teachers seem to have less of an issue with the class although they are still challenging. Children just seem to interrupt more/listen less when I'm in charge. This is really wearing and getting me down. Any advice? Is it me or the kids? I am also going to be totally honest and say, I feel slightly afraid to ask members of staff/SMT for help as I feel like I already look incompetent at handling a class and teaching them because I can't get them to even sit still and listen for long. I really would appreciate any advice/tips. How do I get command authority and get respect? Also I am still semi new to teaching having only qualified a couple of years ago. I don't know if the kids are subconsciously picking on the fact that I'm young and inexperienced...? They don't seem to take me seriously...? Maybe I am overthinking everything but I honestly would appreciate somebody to tell me the honest truth and give some advice. Thanks in advance! N.B. Sorry for the long post! I am just desperate for help and eager to put a stop to this and make good changes so I can get back to teaching.
