I agree Lisa that we need to meet our students with a clean slate. This year started with two new students from the same school. The information I received on both of these students was completely opposite of the actions of the students. I was glad when I read their paperwork, but waited to meet the students without judgement on behavior. I am glad that I did. Thank you for your explanation of what our students need.
Jerry, Thank you. When school started this year, it did with new students and a completely new set of behaviors, along with meltdowns. I follow the plan that you described. Many general education teachers ask how I stay so calm, besides many prayers it is also the knowledge that getting upset will only anger the student more and escalate the behavior. Besides the meltdown is not about me it is about the student. Reading this as well as all the other comments, I know many out there are facing the same challenges. It is always best to have a plan before faced with the behaviors, but many of the steps will come from the passion for teaching. Thanks again, I look forward to read your other posts.
