A friend of mine who is currently teaching in a middle school tells me how one of his previously most difficult student (class clown), is now one of his students that help keep the other students calm and under control. By under control, He told me that if he had to step out of the room for a quick moment, then the class clown was the one who would keep others from misbehaving. Has anyone or do you know of anyone who teaches have a student that use to be a trouble maker for them but is now more of the right hand man? It sounds like a good thing for the teacher because it may take a load off of their hands on trying to maintain control when absent. Is there a downside or later negative effect?
