You have the Walking Carpet Personality:

You are always being walked over by your students. Your room often seems like a party. Unfortunately, you do not usually have control. Very little learning occurs and when it does you really feel like you've accomplished something. You don't know how to say no and kids know it. Your reputation precedes you from year to year. Kids either love your class or hate it depending on their goals.

Seriously though...:

If you are currently teaching, you have to change things immediately. That's easier said than done. It's always easier to get easier as the year goes on. Make small steps. Institute a new rule at a time. Create an incentive system for good behavior. If, on the other hand, you are becoming a teacher and have this personality, fight against it. Students will quickly learn how to bamboozle you and you will find that teaching is much hard than need be.
