I've had a hard hard time trying to do everything that is required of me. And the students I have are all fairly physical and can get violent with their friends at times. There's a lot of defiance involved. And I'm trying really hard not to be the bad guy, but I'm constantly having to raise my voice and I've reached well passed my breaking point. I'm at such a loss.

Have you tried using the "their level method". Where you get down on their level and redirect so you are not yelling? They may only think you are serious when you yell. Also are they in an age where you can use "thinking time"? Thinking time can be used to try to combat violent behavior.

I've actually been told that I do really good with getting on their level, and since some kiddos aren't 4 yet, I'm not sure

Try not to raise your voice. If you start trying to talk over the students, you will set that as "the standard". Try to wait until the class is quiet before you speak. All situations are different, it's just a suggestion.

I completely understand I'm in the same situation! My school is also very close and I'm the new one on board and there's a few teachers who are just dramaaaaaa, and it's just hard to find the right footing.

Remember that the moment you raise your voice you have lost control!
