Hi Heather! I wouldn't get down on yourself on this matter. There is always going to be students out there that don't think you like them. I've noticed especially the ones who have discipline issues and you are the one who "cracks" down on their behaviors are the ones who feel this way. They will learn to love you in a respectful way if you continue to do the same for them. =) Good luck!

Fun article with great ideas.

5 Dress-up time!
This was a fun article to read! It's always great to have a simple guideline to follow when trying to figure out what to wear. Showing professionalism is a great way to show the students "who the boss is" but on the other hand having the casual days shows your students that you can also have fun while learning! My son's teacher does this and really gets into it when it's a fun dress-up day! It brings out a great character but at the same time his students focus on him when he speaks!=)
