The students also hate task-masters. They hate repetition, as well.
My kids hate writing, reading, and homework to the point they will not do it, and not even the bosses at the school can make them do it. A common theme as I have learned. As the kids get older, the harder they are to teach. They will do everything to get a rise out of you. The worst kids…are the bosses kids. They can take over a class in a heartbeat. They are the leader of the class. The other kids will follow them. If you can get that kid on your side, that is a win. If not…well, you tried.
Also, hope like hell that no one of any authority at your school corrects you, contradicts you, or nullifies any directive given by you in front of the kids. They will see that and they will learn their out.
Seriously, if kids put a fraction of the effort they use getting out of doing their work, into actually doing their work, they themselves would be amazed.
Expect little, if any, backup by the parents. Where I teach, it is basically non-exsitent. I have heard in other counties it is different, so, go with that.
Every mistake you make, will be the worst mistake you make. You are under a microscope. I almost lost a job because of the differences between American and British grammar and spelling!
