classroom management Oct 20, 2022

Classroom management woes? We’ve all struggled with students' behavior in the classroom at one time or another.

The backbone of your classroom, the part that supports everything else you do, is your classroom management system. Honestly, just about any system can work, if it fits you and your teaching style. The key is your system needs to be simple, easy to use and manage all day, and sustainable over the long haul that is a school year.


I know you've heard this before, but teaching really is a marathon, not a sprint. 

In order to not just survive but thrive in the midst of the marathon, good classroom systems must be in place and that includes your classroom management system. In this episode, we'll chat about a simple system to make managing your students' behavior a little bit easier. In fact, if used consistently, your students will learn how to begin to take responsibility for their behavior.

Listen in to the full episode to find out:

  • Tips for effective classroom management.
