Students lied on me!

I am a first year teacher. I work in an inner city school and I have a huge number of students who are disrespectful to adults. I teach 11th and 12th grade. I've been verbally abused daily by students. I write them up, call parents, and nothing changes.

Yesterday, I called an administrator to come and get 3 of my students who were causing a huge disruption in my class. It's worth noting, it's only about 2 or 3 students in each class who are extremely disruptive. Later that day, the AP and P met with me. They stated that students said I told them to get the #### out of my classroom and that I said I get plenty of pussy. I was sooo taken aback because I have never cursed a student or use profanity in my vocabulary! In other words, the students lied on me!

They said it was standard that they had to take my statement. Have you ever had a student lie on you? What happens next? It's so upsetting to know that a student will make such a false allegation to deter his or her behavior.

It's worth noting that the students that I am having problems with are constantly on the suspension list, in retract, and failing all of their other classes.

It's worth noting that my classes as a whole performed better on the standardize test than any English class at my school! My 12th grade class had the highest score on the first quarter standardize test out of all classes in the entire district! So it's not about teaching! I am a great teacher and my results speaks for themselves.

I dream of the day that I could just come into my class and educate and not deal with the disrespect from the problem students.

In my school, I think we've all had students lie about us. The principal always asks for our side of the story.

Personally, I think this is a great reason to be a member of the teacher's union. You never know when you may need their services. Are you a member?

Kids are very disrespectful any more. It's not good!

Good luck!

I teach 2nd grade and I have a student who constantly lies about me to his parents. Unfortunately the parents believe him and not me.

I'm just wondering...if you're a first year teacher how did you manage to do all of those standardized tests already?

in response to previous poster...I think they are referring to their time student teaching

I've had students lie on me. I just stick to my story; their's usually changes.

Good luck!

I have always thought the proper preposition to follow "lied" would be "about" as in, "he lied about me" but maybe that is the old fashioned way to express that fact.

Hmm, your profile says you teach 8th grade. As other posters said, your grammar could use some help.
Troll?
