  • kriscoop80 Sep 3 @ 9:08 PM EDT
    A1: I would say what I have in common is I am laid back, but kids really don't misbehave. My difference is I live in organized chaos #oklaed
  • MrsHime Sep 3 @ 9:08 PM EDT
    A1: IMO Ts now have more distractions than my Ts did #oklaed
  • nancy_nwilliams Sep 3 @ 9:08 PM EDT

  • djthoreson Sep 3 @ 9:08 PM EDT
    A1: Same - don't like to face confrontation, Diff - I CAN face confrontation and am consistent with expectations #oklaed
  • angmlittle Sep 3 @ 9:08 PM EDT
    A1) Seemed to always be the new teachers which our students are getting way too many of these days with so many T's leaving. :/ #oklaed
  • MPSTechnology Sep 3 @ 9:08 PM EDT
    A1: 2 types: Scared to misbehave and loved her and didn't want to disappoint. #oklaed

    A1. In no way. #oklaed

    Q2 #oklaed (keep an open mind)
  • MrsBeck25 - Moderator Sep 3 @ 9:11 PM EDT
    A1: Nada. I built my entire persona as a T as a complete opposite of the woman left me in the corner for a semester... #oklaed
  • MrsBeck25 - Moderator Sep 3 @ 9:11 PM EDT
    Who does his hair?!?! #oklaed
  • coach57 Sep 3 @ 9:11 PM EDT
    Great question for #OKlaed.
  • msnixon5 Sep 3 @ 9:11 PM EDT
    A1: Not a lot of similarities.. Differences would be attitude toward students and ability to stay calm #oklaed
  • bridgestyler Sep 3 @ 9:11 PM EDT
    A2: This is why budget cuts are devastating. Wraparound services are more important than ever, and disappearing left and right. #oklaed
  • HaileyKay2018 Sep 3 @ 9:12 PM EDT
    A1: I feel like the attribute most prevalent in those Ts is that they were distant, I hope to be connected and foster relationships #OklaEd

    80% of discipline write ups or office referrals usually come from 2 teachers in a building #oklaed

    A2: Build trusting relationship w Ss, refer some issues to counselor, work as a team to help Ss #oklaed

    A1) We are passionate about history. However, I encourage my students to think critically, while he expected us to memorize facts. #oklaed
  • vperezy Sep 3 @ 9:13 PM EDT
    A1 Loved what we taught, but I try to hook Ss into the subject & get Ss to fall in love, too, or see relevance #WhenIWasBoredIWasBad #oklaed

    I hope I'm being responsive to them. I hope I recognize when and what Ss are communicating. #oklaed

    A2: Know your students and address the needs as they arise...if you can't help them..find somebody that can. #oklaed
  • jackson5th6th Sep 3 @ 9:14 PM EDT

    A2 When Ss trust you w/ their issues, you don't judge them. Try to get them what they need or connect w/ who can #oklaed
  • hoffman_debbie Sep 3 @ 9:15 PM EDT
    A2. It's necessary to know ss. Build relationship & meet the needs as best one can. Provide food, understanding, dignity, etc. #oklaed
  • msnixon5 Sep 3 @ 9:15 PM EDT
    A2: I try to find out what the cause of the problem is. Hungry? I have snacks. Tired? Take a break. Upset? Tell me about it. #oklaed
  • scienceteachtk Sep 3 @ 9:15 PM EDT
    To me, sending them to someone else says, "I don't care enough or don't want to deal with you." Not the message I want to send #oklaed

  • mcappsparks Sep 3 @ 9:15 PM EDT
    A2 cont. if they don't talk, I try methods subtlely--friends, Ts, etc. We have supports for Ss, but they may not know about them... #OklaEd
  • jcbjr Sep 3 @ 9:15 PM EDT
    #OklaEd A2: Before I left the classroom in 2009, I sought to be a good listener & observer. I didn't support some who didn't seek 2 engage.

    Shout out to all the teachers who can barely make ends meet but still keep snacks in their desk. #oklaed
  • mrsmcreading Sep 3 @ 9:16 PM EDT
    A2) As teachers we probably model this more than we think when our behavior changes due to our own hunger or lack of sleep! #oklaed

    A2 cont. so I try to bridge the gap btwn S and resource. Not sure I do this as well as I ought. #OklaEd
  • kriscoop80 Sep 3 @ 9:16 PM EDT
    A2. I give S's time to process when they are upset. Let them know I am there to listen & listen when needed.But time is an issue. #oklaed
  • KndrgartnROX Sep 3 @ 9:17 PM EDT
    A2: usually a private talk w/ me to figure out what they need and what we can do to solve the problem. #oklaed

  • tbbrwn Sep 3 @ 9:18 PM EDT
    A3 this is why it's so impt to get to know our students. So we can ask what's up, mean it, and find help if needed. All abt trust #oklaed
    In reply to @KimberBlodgett
  • nancy_nwilliams Sep 3 @ 9:18 PM EDT
    A2 Breakfast & lunch for all has helped. Emotional needs of respect and caring are being worked on. Only then can we teach. #oklaed
  • Jules4Ever Sep 3 @ 9:18 PM EDT

    A3: many times, the Ss don't even know their physiological or social-emotional root causes to behavior. They are just kids.#oklaed
  • kriscoop80 Sep 3 @ 9:19 PM EDT
    A3. They are kids and we think as adults. There is a difference how we react (most adults). We need to stop and remember being a kid #oklaed

      Students notice how you interact with your colleagues & superiors. They know what you say about other Ts when they are not present. #oklaed

    A8: it's tough to ask a student to control their emotions, when we can't control our own. Model expected behavior! #oklaed

    Gotta run, #OKLAed. Enjoy the day off tomorrow! Great job @KimberBlodgett!! :)
  • andredaughty Sep 3 @ 9:47 PM EDT
    A8. cont. Also, we, #oklaed, have to realize that some Ts pressure points are different than others. Your level 10 may be my level 4.
  • Sgraceskidmore Sep 3 @ 9:47 PM EDT
    A8 we need to remember that the goal is progress not perfection... for the students and for teachers. GROWTH MINDSET #oklaed

      Q8 #oklaed Loving this chat!!! It's important to remember behavior management isn't just about managing the Ss, but also managing ourselves.

    A9: This year I've been sitting in the circle with my Ss more. I haven't had as many behavioral issues this year. :-) #oklaed
  • jcbjr Sep 3 @ 9:47 PM EDT
    #OklaEd A7: THEN, sadly, saw it as students' need to adjust. NOW, see me asking good ??? and students' having control --> student buy in.
  • watersenglish Sep 3 @ 9:47 PM EDT
    A9 We do a lot of reflective writing in my classes, and I model that reflection process for the Ss, incl. reflecting on my lessons. #oklaed
  • kriscoop80 Sep 3 @ 9:47 PM EDT
    A9. I let them reflect on their behavior. Let them say why they behaved that way. Then we discuss how to "fix" it or improve. #oklaed
  • MrBurtonMPS Sep 3 @ 9:48 PM EDT
    A9: rotate group or class leadership roles; reflective rubrics #oklaed

  • MrsHime Sep 3 @ 9:49 PM EDT
    A9: Discuss choices, is that a good choice or bad choice? Empower Ss to take ownership of their behavior #oklaed
  • suzanwray Sep 3 @ 9:49 PM EDT
    A9- We give Ss pts for things they do in our rooms (performance). This has worked great. They then see how factors affect learning. #oklaed

    A10 I try to find ways to connect with them, see the positive, remind them that I believe in them, and want them to be successful. #oklaed
  • mrdaltonsavage Sep 3 @ 9:52 PM EDT

    A10: greet each S as they walk in; lets them know I see them. During collab or indy work speak to each S, esp about non-class life #oklaed
  • msnixon5 Sep 3 @ 9:53 PM EDT
    A10: You have to figure out what interests them. When they know you are willing to talk about what they like they will listen. #oklaed
  • mcappsparks Sep 3 @ 9:54 PM EDT
    A10 the motivation, as my dad says, is it's all about the kids. I try hard to make personal connections--talk to them like adults. #OklaEd
  • BeckiLaoshi Sep 3 @ 9:54 PM EDT

    I stand in awe of #oklaed. 20 to 120 kids per day, being responsible for their behavior AND education, most lay people would run in fear.
  • Sgraceskidmore Sep 3 @ 9:56 PM EDT
    A10 make sure they know who they are matters more than what they know. Teach whole ss not just subject. Learn from mistakes ts & ss #oklaed
  • suzanwray Sep 3 @ 9:57 PM EDT
    A11- I will make an effort to reach out to Ss that don't follow "walk the line". Let them know I care. #oklaed

  • jcbjr Sep 3 @ 9:58 PM EDT
    #OklaEd A9: Pretty straightforward... Make it clear that students are in control and their making (hopefully good) choices is not an option.
