What should you do as a teacher if your students give you attitude?

I have a difficult time being strict. When i yell at my students i feel that i'm not a good teacher and i'm being unfair. How should i reaact to students who are stubborn and rude? And in general, how can i make my student love me and admire me as their teacher?

Students from public schools come from all walks of life. As a teacher, you do not have control over the behavioral choices of your students. Yet, you can control the way YOU react to their behavior. If your students are rude, you must remain calm, professional and always in control of your feelings and language... More

You can't. Look, you don't get paid to have your students like you. You get paid to teach them. Once I stopped caring if my students liked me or not, and got the classroom running the way I wanted it to, they started to like me... More

Enforce strict rules, but first gain their acceptance by being "cool".

You can't make anyone love and respect you. You have to earn it just like they have to earn it from you. Try watching movies like the Principal and Dangerous Minds. It might sound hoakey but it could give you a start. Fall back on your studying of child development and try to find answers from teachers who seem to... More

Be just, not fair. Don't make them guess about you. Make them earn your attention when they want it, and dread it when they don't. I do what my grandmother did. I punish violaters harshly. I praise success loudly. I let everyone know that the only things they are getting away with are the things I am letting them... More

You have to realize that if your students respect you and you treat them fairly with definite consequences, they will like you more in the long run. I always try to get to know my students as individuals by paying attention to their likes, dislikes, and extra-curricular activities. Also, learn to listen when students... More

AS a teacher, you have to set certain rules in the classroom to help you with discipline problem. For me, i set up our rules first meeting we have. Use simple rules that everybody can remember. My simple rule is only one... that is RESPECT.... and in my class this should be followed. You have to be consistent also with... More

First of all, stop yelling. It doesn't work. Second, quit worrying about whether they like you or even if they think you are fair. Just because something isn't fair, doesn't mean you shouldn't do it. As long as what you do is legal, morally right and in the best interest of the student, that is all you should worry... More

It doesn't do any good to be the loudest one in the classroom. You need to be consistent. You can't punish the one's that always talk out of turn and let your good students slide when they do the same. That is showing favortism. The studets will call you out on it. If you are fair and firm, the students will... More

Stop yelling. Instead, become quiet, like a cat. Use your body language to let the kids know that you are p****d. This sounds crazy, but it works. Learn the teacher stare and use it. If you don't know what that is already, go up to a scary-ass kid that intimidates YOU (NOT one in your class) and tell him to give you a... More

If your students give you attitude for being strict, then the reverse is also true. You need to bring two spanish dancers to give a performance to them. This may loosen them up and you too. Play reverse roles for a while... More
