You should have then ripped of your shirt and tried to act like a green angry ripped monster. That would scare the poop out of your students.
Something's not right when even the teachers are becoming the victims of bullying...
33, in a free country as many of us are from, it shouldn't matter how you act, because you're free to act how you want (as long as laws aren't broken). So saying that someone who acts 'weird' (which btw may vary in meaning depending on who you ask) deserves to be bullied is just plain stupid and uncalled for at the least.
give them all detention and a give B- to all the Asians and there lives will be ruined. JK lol
I voted both FYL and YDI. I'm very sorry you were bullied by your students, but I have this strong feeling that you are the kind of teacher that says: "If you do this one more time, I will punish you!" and never punishes anyone. You don't have to become a Hitler-copy in the classroom, but you can't expect your students to respect you and to behave good if you don't punish their bad behaviour. You are the boss in the classroom, don't let them cross your line.
Sadly, these days, even if you try to punish the little bastards, either the administration just gives them a slap on the wrist, or the parents come in and make your life miserable for persecuting their perfect little angels. The parents expect teachers to discipline their little monsters, but the first time the teacher does and the evil little gremlins run home screaming about "mean teacher", the parents are up in arms, screaming for the teacher's head on a lunch tray. Teachers these days just can't win.
Yea the first bit of advice I got from my mentor when I went in to teach my first class was to lay down the law right from the start and be friendly, yet let them know they will never get away with shit. Children can smell weakness and they will exploit it to no end unless you deal with them with power and authority and you're fully able to back up your claims. Parents appreciate good teaching even if their kids cry by the end of it.
