No Friends
Mary was experiencing behavior and learning problems at school. She refused to do written work, she was stubborn and her teacher found her difficult to work with. Her mother was extremely worried. She also reported that her daughter was experiencing social problems and often complained that she didn’t have any friends.

Maybe the teacher can work with the student to provide motivation for the student to do their work and redirect misbehavior. Also, the teacher could try pairing the student with another student for an assignment or project this way the student can possibly gain a new friend who might help the student make better choices.

Try to find people Mary might work well with and create assignments or projects that are small group. Create jobs for each person. This might help her create relationships with other students and help bring her out of her shell.

I would suggest that the teacher attempt mild redirection before any other steps are taken. Perhaps having group work where the students are assigned groups so that she is forced into a situation where she might talk with other students.
If the mild-moderate interventions do not work, refer the student to the school counselor or psychologist to discern the root issue. Once it is found, discuss the issue with the parent and attempt to find a multilateral solution.

I would put Mary in contact with the school guidance counselor to discover any deeper issues Mary might have. As for specific classroom management, I would implement procedures and consequences that are clearly presented to the student.
