Calling students bad
During my volunteer work, the teacher would frequently try settle the class down by being silent in hopes they too would be quiet. When this did not work, she would look at me and tell me the kids are all bad, and she asks how can she be ding this job with kids that don't listen. The kids all hear her say this, and after, they act up even more. She only adds fuel to their fire.

Maybe it would be helpful to suggest some alternative redirection ideas to the teacher when she says this. While it may be awkward you should defend the students by stating your opinion that you do not think the students are bad, they are children after all, but that when she makes these comments in front of them it seems to only encourage their negative behavior.

There is a difference if she said " they are bad students" or "they are acting bad". I understand her frustration on not having students talk over her but she should try to control her anger. It is hard when you are a guest in someone else's classroom, but take a mental note of this since you see how it affected her students.
