Standing in the Way of Your Own Classroom Management?

I think we can all agree that classroom management is vital when it comes to making sure that the children know who is boss. I’m sure that we can all also agree on the fact that bad behaviour is zero amounts of fun and often throws the lesson off track; ugh! Oh, and even worse have you ever noticed that after one child decides to mis-behave there is like a massive torpedo of bad behaviour thrown at you? Every teacher, teaching assistant, and even other support staff in schools deal with this chaotic sort of mischief on a daily basis. Breathe, it’s okay – you’ve got this!

You’ve got this because you’re the one in charge! Try your hardest not to forget that you are the one who is in control of the classroom management and how you manage the class really does affect the lesson. Chances are highly likely that you know this already. But have you ever stopped to question if you are in fact standing in the way of your own classroom management? Here are a few things that you may overlook normally, but can actually have an amazing impact on your classroom management techniques!
