TL: Monitor Your Energy Closely

Teacher Lesson: I learned on my second day of teaching ever, you cannot out yell a student.  When a student's energy is negatively high, monitor your energy closely.  Come down in voice, choose your words carefully, and breathe.

That was also the day I learned that my 12:1:1 special education class did in fact have a paraprofessional, who I met when she returned with one of the kids who had just gotten into a fight.

It was a small room, big enough for a related service provider's office.  My class was mostly boys and yes, there were many more fights that year.
