School is about to start for students and teachers all over the state, and one teacher is providing advice for educators before they reach the classroom.

Veronica Nash Poleate gained Internet fame when she created an advice video regarding the shark attacks in North Carolina.

Now, she is at it again.

Poleate created a video earlier this week for teachers.

She says it can be difficult to handle students who aren’t ready to settle down, especially at the beginning of the year.

In the video, she shows a few tricks she learned from being an educator, including the ‘stank eye’ and talking through your teeth.

“Establish that discipline in the beginning but do it in respect. Know that children are people too, and all people deserve respect,” she said. “You get what you give. If you don’t give respect, then they’re not gonna respect you. I can always say that I have worked with challenging students, but I have never been disrespected.”

Poleate is a school counselor.
