Some students have a hard home life… and sometimes, that shows up as a bad attitude at school. Teachers can’t fix the home situation… but I’m grateful for the ones who are understanding and patient. There is always something going on behind that “bad attitude.”

@SteeleThoughts So true! It’s tough to remember not to take it personally when they go off on you. I tell my kids that I love them like I do my own kid. Whether that helps or not, I don’t know.🤷‍♀️

@karlacmathis @SteeleThoughts Mrs. Karla it helps more than you know. I am a school Social Worker and I can’t tell you how many times students tell me they come to school for that ONE teacher! Teachers (admin/staff/supports) have No ideas the power they have in the lives of theses kiddos! Good and bad!

@SteeleThoughts So agree. Reminds me of this image from Whole Hearted Counseling. We need to look into the reason behind the attitude.

@SteeleThoughts ‘Bad attitude’ can also come from undiagnosed mental health issues such as depression. Build a relationship and create a safe space for students to let their guard down.

@SteeleThoughts Also, some kids are having a hard time at school which is blamed on a poor home life. Be conscious not to make assumptions and attend to student needs in the environment you are part of.

@SteeleThoughts Some students come from homes where they are not spoken to respectfully or kindly. They truly don't know how to relate otherwise because it hasn't been modeled to them. Just had a parent come in and curse out an administrator in front of her child and other students.

@SteeleThoughts Precisely. Educators of special needs children see the bigger picture and therefore do not judge.
