Student movement backfired.

I have a student who doesn't get along with anyone in the class that she sits with (other than her BFF, who she talks to non-stop if I put her there).
I got tired of her complaining, so I moved her to a single desk next to mine.
Now she talks to me non-stop.

Last year I subbed in a friend's class for a couple of weeks while she was on FMLA. I was offered a part time permanent position and took it. They hired another teacher. This class was needy, to say the very least. There were three little boys who were there to play and that's it. They were very disruptive. I ended up taking away all of their writing implements (pencils, crayons, markers) as they were using them as missiles. The sub followed through and did the same thing. The new teacher tried to give them back, but these boys just didn't care. They found other things to throw, anyway. So, she took low and very stable bookcases and made study cubbies for their desks. They could see her and the students in front of them, but they couldn't see each other. Cracked me up. She strategically placed the other students so that the ones who wouldn't pay attention to them were closest to them and the ones who would were farthest away. Smart lady! She periodically tried to reintegrate them, but was not successful. I often wonder how they are doing this year.

I had a boy once who told me I could not get him to stop talking....he was right. Once, I put him at the back table where a parent was working and the next thing I knew, the two of them were engaged in a lively conversation. I miss that awesome kid.
