Every teacher has students that they struggle to connect with in their classroom. We always have to remember that each student has entire world outside of school that affects the way they view the world and how they feel. Students want to feel like they are cared for and loved in their life. Some students have experienced or are experiencing trials and tribulations in their life that will affect how they interact with others in school. We need to be aware of this as teachers. When a student decides not to participate in a lesson or makes disrespectful comments about others, you need to remember that students are probably dealing with some tough issues that have nothing to do with you.
