VERY Disruptive children

Just curious, in your school, if you have a regular education kid (let's say K or 1) who is throwing a god-awful fit and has to be removed from the classroom, where does he go? Which staff member in your building typically gets this job?
A first grader with behavior problems (he is getting tested for special ed) threw a terrible tantrum at lunch and had to be removed. He sat in the principal's office for an hour screaming his head off until his Mom came and got him straight. I wondered if that is typical for the P to handle it or who else in the school would deal with a kid like this.

Most often, the teacher handles it. Seriously. I've often wondered WHY these students are allowed to remain in the classroom. There should be zero policy against students who disrupt instruction and/or don't follow school rules. Ah well.

If it is a regular education student, then the principal would handle it in my school.

security would remove the student and send them to the counselor. If the counselor is not here then they go to admin.

Now depending on the type of tantrum I'll keep them in my room because they know that I won't play into it. I even have other kids show up at my door because they were throwing a fit.

Very often, I have to just deal with it in the classroom...

Sounds familiar. I teach first, and I've got a child in my class who is very much like a giant two year old. He screams, throws tantrums, hurts other kids, throws things, NEVER does any work and disrupts every single lesson I try to teach. My own opinion is that he's on the autism spectrum, but also has many ADHD characteristics, and likely has a very low IQ. My admin agrees that he needs to go to SpEd, but first we have to prove that he can't make progress in the regular classroom. I have 28 other students who are unable to learn while he's in the room, but no one is doing anything to get him out.

Overwhelming!

Occasionally my principal or a counselor will talk to him or send him home, but it's rare. I'm expected to just somehow make it all work. It's very sad for this child, the rest of the class, and for me! It's so stressful to deal with! I catch him trying to stick things in the outlets (sometimes paperclips, staples or pencils, and sometimes his tongue!!), he throws my books, and he pretty much destroys everything he touches.

Good luck! I hope mine and yours both get to SpEd soon!

Depends upon the situation. I think often the prince would handle it but I've often had kids in my room throwing flat out fits. One of my former students seems to be throwing fits in the cafeteria this year. It breaks my heart. I teach 2nd and he's in 3rd....he's very strong willed (the sort of kid who would flat out rather not eat lunch than eat something he didn't like). My policy was to not engage in a power struggle with him over the food. The deal was, he wouldn't subsequently complain about being hungry and I wouldn't force him to eat. I think the teacher this year is now trying to force him to eat. In this situation the counselor seems to be stepping in ore often.

and she handled our tantrum thrower last year. I think if a child screams so loudly that three or four classes down the hall can hear her, it makes sense to remove her from the room. We are very lucky at my school.

My class is where they go. (only male on the floor)

I ask them why they are here and if the child does not answer the TA or teacher of the child does.

I give them the death stare and then line my class up to harass the child. They tell the kid such wisdom as "stop being rude" "listen to your teacher" ..etc Some poke a finger in the kids chest when talking to them.

The trouble maker then writes an apology letter and I have my biggest student escort him back to class.

Fairly normal for the above here in Asia. Peer pressure and you will conform/the nail that sticks out WILL get hammered back down.

if there is some type of plan in place then the school psychologist or social worker might come and calm the child down, but they will only remove a child from the classroom if they are being a danger to themselves or others. More likely the classroom teacher has to take the rest of the students out of the classroom while they calm down the child who was having the issue! Like that is not even more disruptive to everyone!!

In our school that would classify as bullying. Plus I would need to findanother job.

In my school, the principal would handle it. However, the school psychologist would help the teacher devise a "behavior management" plan which could be used as "evidence" in an RTI meeting if the student's tantrums persist.
