Learning how to deal with difficult students is part of the job. I remember we touched upon this subject in grad school, but you never fully understand until you have a classroom of your own. Even when I was student teaching I remember thinking, "How does this teacher deal with this student every day?" I always thought I had the answer to correcting that unwanted behavior. Little did I know, that it takes years of knowledge and experience to really understand how to deal with these students.
