Teaching is not controlling, but rather working with the students to learn, grow, and succeed together. By having strong student-teacher relationships with students, the classroom will be a place for each member to express their feelings and work together. Academic success depends on these close relationships and guidance that teachers and students have with one another. Classroom management aims at establishing student self-control through a process of promoting positive student achievement and behavior.

When reading Chapter 5 “Craig Seganti on Taking charge in the classroom”, the overall chapter was interesting when it comes to managing a classroom. As a teacher, we want to be able to control the structure of a classroom, but at times is unable to accomplish the task due to our student’s behaviors. At the beginning of the chapter it states a productive classroom may have difficulties but it is the way a teacher present themselves along with the rules of the classroom determines the outcome of the student’s actions. When presenting to the students the rules of the classroom, the teacher needs to present the rules on the first day of school and have the students sign a copy to ensure they are aware of the information.

Thinking back, I can remember almost every teacher and professor I have ever had, but the most influential, were the ones who really pushed and challenged me to be better at the end of the semester than I was at the beginning. When I left home for college, I truly believed I was destined to be the next Oprah Winfrey, but through a series of mazes and life affirming events, I ended up as a Theatre Education Major, with a focus in Stage Management. Although I did not declare Theatre as a major until late in my sophomore year, when I entered Charles Winterwood Theatre for the first time, as a freshman, I knew I was home. Throughout my education journey, I was extremely fortunate to have some magnificent teachers, professors and mentors.
In the classroom, teachers have to teach in a professional manner without disruptions. No pupil should prevent the teacher from teaching, or keep another student from learning. The most effective teachers are those who remain in control of the class and always remember their main duty is to help students learn and behave responsibly. Teachers must continually model through their own behaviour the kind of trust and respect for students that they want students to show toward others. Teachers have the right to ask for and receive help from principals, parents and other school personnel.
Teachers have the power to determine whether their classroom will be a caring atmosphere or an authoritarian environment for the students. Teachers need to curb their ego and model empathy, positive attitude, and leadership skills. She believes that if teachers use positive attitudes when dealing with difficult students, the students will respect the teacher more; therefore, the students will have better behaviors. Showing empathy toward the students will result in the student feeling like someone understands them. Creating relationships with students helps them feel safe in their environment and comfortable talking to the teacher.
Classroom discipline model developed by Lee Canter in 1987 (Newman, 2013). The main focus was to allow teachers to teach children in an environment where they "have a right to learn and a right to have a classroom free from behavior disruption to their learning" (Tuckman & Monetti, 2011, p.464). Canter also puts a lot of emphasis on positive reinforcement. Canter states: Example 2: Recognizing positive behavior.
Lessons in class are rushed and left unfinished due to the tight time restraints placed upon teachers. They are given an inadequate amount of time to teach the excessive amount of material given to them to cover and, more often than not, they fall behind in their lesson plan, leaving them unable to teach all of the topics in each of their classes. Teachers struggle in reciting the entire lesson within the given time. With the extra fifteen to twenty minutes on their hands they could
Some students might perform best when they listen and participating in class discussions, and other might be visual persons while others prefer to take down notes. This is why it is imperative for the teachers to engage in knowing the students at the beginning of the school year and as quickly as possible for them to implement the right teaching strategies. Another important factor for the teachers to take into consideration is the parental support and home environment in the student success. Nowadays, teachers try to build a friendly relationship with the students’ parents because they know that sometimes when the student is not performing well is because there are problems at home.
Classroom management is directly tied to the level of students’ involvement and academic achievement (Kirk, 2010). Behavior management focuses on decreasing the amount of time students display disruptive behaviors so students can achieve academically. There are three effective strategies for effective classroom management. They include, proactive classroom management through praise, consistent consequences and punishments, and positive interaction between teacher and students (Kirk, 2010). Teachers teach students their behavior expectations by teaching them to follow a set of specific rules so they are aware of their expectations in the classroom.
According to Lewis (2009) in his book “Understanding Pupil Behaviour: Classroom Management Techniques For Teachers” mentioned that there are some effects if the teachers don’t know about the students’ characteristics such as stress and Post-Guru Syndrom. Stress happens when they feel unable to maintain an classroom in which students can get on with their work and teachers can teach without unnecessary interruption, it is usually part of failure teacher in managing the classroom misbehavior of students and Post-Guru Syndrom happens when the teachers become inconsistent to implement the appropriate technique in teaching for students and finally
They are then forced to try to control the class which they are unable to do without disciplinary actions, making it way harder to teach. Class management is important because teachers will have more teaching time and it’s a time for relationship building. Stopping behavioral interruptions will allow more time to teach. Class management will also create a positive learning environment where students can state their own opinions without others bashing them for it.

School and teachers can influence the extent and quality of learning for all students. Teacher’s beliefs, practices and attitudes are important for understanding and improving educational processes. They are closely linked to teachers’ strategies for coping with challenges in their daily professional life.
