Calling All Teachers!!! How Do You Teach Respect?
Help! I need some input. I find myself increasingly despondent at the lack of respect shown to me by my students. Today one of them spit in my coffee because there were consequences for being tardy to class. They also lack respect towards themselves and their peers. I admit that my weakness as a teacher is classroom management and that does not help the situation. Do any of you amazing teachers out there have ideas about how to teach respect? I think it would go a long way to improve my teaching and the lives of these kids. I would really like to start out the next year on a high note, and any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
