Sit Down and Shut Up
I need to watch this every day before I go into a classroom for some empowerment. As a substitute and a female I cannot possibly tell students to shut up or that I will "make change" out of them, but I can at least exude the same amount of confidence and ownership of the classroom. Thanks for sharing, Spencer and Kenny (almost).
I think it's sad that I am legitimately scared of being too harsh to a student because I'll get shanked or something. This is an entirely different generation with lack of respect and with a lot of anger. And yet I still prefer middle school and high school students over elementary school kiddies.
