Okay, so I admit it. I said something to a class today I never should have spoken. But I must add, don't judge me, please. You're not in my shoes teaching this particular group of 8th graders. Add pregnancy on top of that and it's a potent combination. I had had ENOUGH today. The disrespect, the backtalking, the not working, the messing with items that aren't theirs (like my thermostat), etc. I couldn't get a class to shut up. So when I finally had their attention (and it took awhile), I said something to the effect of, "If we can't learn to keep our mouths shut, get our work done, and listen, then I can make class a living hell." Now, yes, I know that wasn't appropriate, but again, I reiterate that you're not living this day in and day out. So there, it's out.
