 I'm really behind in my email but just had to add to this. 
  I can have two classes at a time in the LMC. Some teachers are seem to have 
really "good" classes-- quiet, engaged, respectful. Some teachers just let their 
kids run wild, loud talking and most of the time not doing anything but chit 
chatting. I have also noticed that teachers will sometime make the "this is a 
library" announcement for some classes and not for others. They seem to know which 
sections of their classes need a reminder to stay on task and which ones  don't. It 
really gets ugly when we have two loud classes at the same time ( 60+ kids and 
10-15 virtual high school kids in a small room) or when I know that one of the 
teachers likes it quiet. 
  My rule for talking is: if I can hear your plans for the weekend or the latest 
what he did to her-- you are too loud. I will generally just announce "Ladies and 
gentlemen, it is getting too loud in here. I can hear conversations that I don't 
think you want me to hear and we do have students here who need it quieter to work. 
" That usually helps for awhile except with those classes who have been given four 
weeks for do research for a three page paper!! ;>)
