When I was teaching 4th grade- I towered over the little buggers; I had a mustache, a loud and deep voice, and I was their first man teacher.
After a week in class, if I gave them such a look, they all would have fallen to the floor with laughter . They had me figured out pretty fast.
I had other ways that worked, but a withering look wasn't one of them .
Glad you enjoy it- her approach - 8th grade Spec. Ed. - you (that is she) cannot smile for at least the first two weeks of the school year; identify the class 'leader' and focus on him/her, others will fall in line; and if you (the teacher) allow one deviation from your stated rules, you are toast. That said, she burned out, as do they all.
