That's a shame that you feel that your adiminisrators don't
support you in the classroom. Have you tried speaking with your
principal about the behaviors in private? As we all know, the
administrative job is busy but if these behaviors are happening,
something needs to be done. Have you tried some sort of behavior
plan in the classroom. I use to teach alternative education and
there was alaways a consequence for an action, positive or
negative. Many meet with the principal and ask for some
suggestions? Can they come in an observe your class? Have they
ever observed your class. You should not have to go through this,
nor should any of your students who are bahaving.
