Student being inappropriate to teacher
I have a boy, around 18 years old, in my class that I am interning at that loves to make sexual comments at me and talk about me in a sexual way to his friends for amusement. I have tried everything I can to stop this student from doing this, including going to administration. Nothing has changed! My CT tells me to ignore him and he will stop. I am not comfortable with this and I do not want it to escalate to other students. What should I do?

I understand your frustration and would be uncomfortable too, however, he may be doing it to get a reaction from you. I would try to ignore it as best as possible. Then he may realize it isn't working being inappropriate and will stop.

I honestly have the same problem as an intern, with my CT's permission I was allowed to make comments back at the students. They like to interrupt me while I am teaching and make comments in front of the class. I separated my students and this helped a little but addressing the behavior instead of ignoring it has allowed me to gain respect from my students and made them feel indifferent about sexualizing me.
