Don t take the issue personally

Don’t take the issue personally

  • You are in charge of the classroom

  • Students and the College expect you to handle classroom conduct issues

  • You are the authority-subject matter expert

  • Establish early on the need for students to pay attention and learn from your experience

  • You have no idea what is going on in the personal life of the student and their behavior could be a result of outside factors you have no control over

  • Colorado law states that every individual or corporation who has reasonable grounds to believe a crime has been committed has a duty to report the suspected crime to law enforcement authorities

  • (Colorado Revised Statutes § 18-8-115).
