Lunch / Recess Ugh!!

Iím so over my students coming back from Lunch with reports about their poor behavior. Iím all for supporting the aides & my students know my expectations but what am I supposed to do when IíM NOT IN THERE?!?!! Donít give them to me to deal with after the fact.

Iíd be a little more empathetic if they were circulating the room but every time I come in the cafeteria or pick up my class all the aides are sitting down together on one side of the room.... of course thereís going to be behavior issues

Thatís all - vent over... it was just the icing on the cake today

Yes, yes, and yes. Sometimes the reports are good to know, so I can address it, but other times it's like they're angry at me. How is it my fault?I promise you I'm not sending them in there telling them to yell across the room.

I've never understood why there are people who don't understand that cafeteria and recess duty means you actually have to look at the students and notice what they're doing. Just being there isn't enough if you're going to converse with colleagues (or look at your cellphone) and pay no attention to what's going on.

I hated when the aides would report student behavior at recess or lunch to me, or the principal would send an email forcing me to actively deal with it. One year, she decided that she didn't like how the students were returning to their classrooms following recess, so we had to go pick them up, shortening our lunch/recess because we had to wait for the aides to dismiss them class by class from the cafeteria. You never knew whose class was being called first on any given day...

I think I'm going to make a sign that says something like "save the drama for your momma! We have work to do!" or "leave the drama at the door--we don't need that...No More!"

Amen sister. I get this too.

but for me the worst is when my kids run up to me and tell me all about what so-an-so from another class did to them during recess. The answer-She told me to tell you .

Nope! I wasnt there, I didnt see what happened, I dont know what else was going on. There is no way for me to handle this fairly when everyone just denies it and I wasnt there so how the heck do I know.

I need the folks on duty to handle it.
