Re: inner city teaching prob

Holly, I'm really glad to read your post about needing 3-4 years in a
district to sort of build your reputation. I'm at a new school this year, the
fifth art teacher in the last five years in my teaching assignment. The kids
came to class ready to act up and play. They saw it as a "goof off" class,
where the teacher would give them a C as long as they didn't disrupt. I've
been making them work, calling parents, working with counsellors and have had
to amend some of my classroom management techniques. Things are starting to
turn around, but there are still a lot of fires to put out every day.
