I am a secondary supply. and sometimes do exam invigilating. I had to go back to supply so that I could do my Masters full time. The behaviour of students in schools is starting to make me want to leave the profession. Last week while invigilating year 11 mock exams the behaviour was really bad. Students were giving me attitude, some of them actually glaring at me during the exams. Once, I was invigilating a group of 30 students and they wouldn't stop laughing and being disrespectful. This doesn't seem to happen with the other invigilators so I am thinking this is something to do with me. Today while on supply, I had a year 11 boy aggressively confront me for confiscating his snacks which he was eating during the lesson. He became very argumentative and even refused to leave the classroom. Student only left when a teacher visited the class and removed him himself and TA was no help at all. Then I covered year 9 English. Absolute crowd control. Worse lesson I've ever had. Here's what happened: Had the misfortune of meeting an annoying as hell trans student ("I get it, you like boys, and want a boyfriend, you're horny shut the f*** up about it and stop shoving your sexuality down everyone's throat, CHRIST) Students shouting across the classroom, completely ignoring all instructions, only communicating with me to ask to go to the toilet, nurse, etc Year 11 boy pushing student into room before the lesson started, then wouldn't take his hand off the door so that year 9 class couldn't get into the classroom. I told the consultant about all this and told them to stop sending me to the latter school. I go there on regular assignments but I've lost all credibility. I have no power there anymore. I need to find a way so that I don't have to do supply ever again. It's not up for me to fix them.
