I don't mind them chatting while they work, but many simply don't do the
work. Instead, they wander around the room, hit one another, sometimes even run
and knock things down or fall down. They are constantly playing, and SO LOUD
that I can't even hear a student who is trying to ask me a question right in
front of me. When I try to explain the next project or teach them about an
artist, they simply talk through the entire thing. They are incredibly
disrespectful...so much so that I feel enraged at times. I want so badly to have a room
where the kids are excited and working and sharing ideas, but I think I had
only one day when that happened. It was the last project while they were
painting their frames, and two of my most troubled students were absent. It seemed
to change the whole dynamic of the room.
