I am one of those people that say kids want discipline. I truly believe
that, I also believe they want to be a part of the discipline procedure.
Talk with them about the rules and why you have them, let them offer ideas
on the rules. Remember you are the one in charge and remind the students
of that or you will have a horrible year. You have to have a strong
personality to survive. I have taught jr. high for 15 years and I don't
want to move to high school or elementary. These kids have an excitement
you won't find anywhere else.
