ACT - The Association of Christian Teachers

for Christians working in education



‘I am a cover supervisor and I am finding my job extremely difficult. Classes usually start with low-level behaviour problems such as shouting out, talking when I am talking and speaking to me in an offhand and disrespectful fashion. When I tell the students to stop, they persist; when I implement the behaviour policy, they are often indignant, argumentative and answer back. My line manager and I have asked for seating plans repeatedly, but most teachers don’t bother to send them. I seem to end up giving detentions on a daily basis, but this does not work. I have now received warnings from the vice-principal that the school may take disciplinary action against me as a result of the number of times I send students out, the number of detentions I am giving and behaviour issues that have to be followed up by subject teachers after class. I am so frustrated. Any advice would be gratefully received.’
