I would like to know how you handled disruptive giving
specific examples. You said that you taught K-12 for a number of years...what
kinds of behavior problems did you deal with and how SPECIFICALLY? I have had
kids crawl up on my tables..I have had kids lift up stools over their
heads....speaking of stools which are dangerous I spend a lot of time just
reminding the kids how to sit on them (first and second grade) I have broken up
fights , I could go on. I think I am sucessful in controlling my classes but
their are always a few students who choose to act up and I think I would have
to say that I would use the crackers if it meant that all my other students did
not have to lose their learning time! I dont think that anyone was telling
you that teaching college is less important than public school...but you
obviously you dont have to tell your college students to sit on their bottoms.
(And without sucessful college teachers where would we all be???)
