Classroom Management Philosophy


       The utmost valuable aspect that creates a good learning atmosphere is classroom management. Without a classroom that is organized and disciplined, learning is close to unmanageable. This is why I believe that it is crucial that a teacher begins a classroom with a well thought out management plan. I think that this plan should just provide a base for the classroom, and should be structured around anticipation, admiration, and stability.
            Although discipline problems are expected in any classroom, prevention through set rules and an appealing curriculum can compensate many distractions in the learning environment. I think that as a teacher, an initial discussion of classroom rules and making your expectations clear from the beginning can help students understand what you want from ...view middle of the document...

  Although it may be hard to engage in exciting lessons at all time, just by keeping the momentum of the lesson going, students will be less able to act out in class.
            One of the main guidelines to set for the classroom and for the teacher to abide by is respecting all students. I think that the importance of respect is very essential and should be followed by everyone in the classroom.  When the students see that the teacher really respects them as people, the students will follow with respect towards the teacher and peers and therefore will create fewer problems. Students are more likely to talk back to teachers that they don’t respect and those that they don’t feel respect them in return.  One way to create this common respect in the classroom is to become involved in students’ lives.  Besides helping the students to feel more welcomed into the classroom, learning more about what is going on in students’ lives will also help the teacher uncover aspects about background and learning style. Overall, this common feeling of comfort and respect in the classroom will hopefully dodge severe classroom circumstances.
            When situations unavoidably arise in the classroom, an important rule that teachers should follow is consistency. Although different situations should be handled accordingly, teachers favoring some while alienating others will be seen by the class as inconsistent and will cause a teacher to lose the students’ trust and respect.  Therefore, consistency with punishments and mannerisms is very important for the teacher to maintain control of the class. 
            While a tough issue to wrestle, classroom management and discipline plans are important to create positive learning conditions.  I contemplate that with prevention tactics, respect and consistency; teachers can nurture an atmosphere where students will benefit. I think that teacher personality is a key aspect in this plan, and each teacher should adapt accordingly to fit his or her needs.  Although a plan is essential to teaching, I think that taking each move step by step and responding by modifying the rules as you go along is the best way to ensure overall achievement.
