They thought that simply because of my gender I could come into a known problem situation and fix it. Well, I'll be honest, I was not prepared by my college degree to handle the severe behavior problems I encountered. Somehow I survived it but felt like I was a glorified babysitter and not an educator. After 7 years of doing the best I knew how, I took a job in my hometown of Cody, Wyoming. I was blown away by the drastic difference in student behavior.
