So this is crazy cause I thought I was the only one. I taught college for 18 years then middle school for 3. I would yell on the top of my lungs, Hey! Everyone would get quiet. I’d say Dr Wilkinson is on audio overload. I have hearing problems & I am really sensitive. Please bring it down a few notches. Then I developed this thing where if it got loud, I would hold my nose and raise the other hand. Kids would try and do it as fast as they could and get really quiet. The last one still talking isn’t paying attention & everyone starts laughing at them. They start to pay attention more. We have to be adaptable & creative with our idiocincrocies
