There’s an unfortunate reality about teaching that you’ll eventually comes across: you’ll eventually end up angry at one of your students or your students will be angry or aggressive towards you. It’s hard to know how to manage aggression we might have towards students who aren’t behaving in class. We might feel ridiculed, disrespected, not listened to, or more. As Social Emotional Learning teaches us, our emotions don’t exist in a vacuum. One bad day at home or a bad week outside of school can be compounded when a student acts up, causing us to lash out or turn to aggressive behavior.
