goodclassroom managementI think it prudent from time to time to re-examine my philosophy of classroom management.  My philosophy of classroom management  has changed over the years.  When I was a newbie teacher,  I thought if  I used the right techniques for classroom management everything would be OK. Well, I’ve learned  and used many classroom management techniques over the years, but I have come to the conclusion that while  excellent management techniques are necessary for classroom success, they are not sufficient for classroom success.  I found that developing an authentic relationship with my students helped my classroom management more than any of the latest classroom management techniques. When kids saw that I cared about them, they better managed their behaviour in class.  I start to develop positive relationships with my students on the first day of school  by asking these nine questions. How do you develop positive relationships with your student?

    Nice post, Elona, and spot on. Thanks for the recent post about your orchids. You should start a blog for them and post some pictures of your successes.
