How do you handle disciplining a child who is acting out? | Special Education Teacher Questions

You want to show that you never lose control without sounding like a tyrant. Explain that you set routines that help students stay focused and that you have the rules clearly posted on the wall. Don’t tell them that you’ll just send the delinquent kid to the principal’s office. This shows that you don’t really have a handle on your classroom – and that you’re willing to pass off a problem to someone else. Of course if you kid commits an egregious act of violence or starts screaming and doesn’t stop, you should send your kid to the office because no amount of “handling” is going to resolve that. Something else that may be a good answer is to suggest that your kids won’t be acting out because your lesson plans are so exciting and interesting.
