Labelling them as trouble-makers only makes them become one.

During my work placement, the class trouble-maker got told off and sent to the corner. But this time, they hadn’t done anything wrong and I was there.

The trouble-maker got accused by the teacher’s pet. After having a civil reading session, the teacher’s pet claimed that the trouble-maker had messed with her book whilst she was reading.

This never happened.

Immediately told off by the teacher, the class trouble-maker tried to defend himself. However, having a pre perceived opinion of him, the teacher dismissed everything he said.

He got sent to the corner — sad and defeated yet not surprised.
