    Jennifer, I am a brand new sub teacher; matter of fact I was only certified last week and am waiting for my first assignment, but I will share what my daughter, who later became a teacher, said she did when she subbed. She had a student just like yours and she called him up to her desk one day and said: "David, clearly you are a leader here, but I am not going to fight with you over control of this class. What I am going to do is propose that we work together as a team to make this a fun and rewarding class for both of us as well as all the students. This is what I
    need from you....."

    She said he readily agreed and became her champion in the class. You may want to give it a try next time around. Good luck (to us both!)
