In my classroom I would allow students to develop their own set of classroom rules and consequences with my guidance. This allows the students to define the meaning of respect and how it applies to our classroom and provides a judicious approach to discipline. Learning to respect one another develops a mutual trust among the classroom community. Learning respect also occurs through an open sharing of ideas. Students become members of the classroom community by using discussion strategies and positive support of others ideas.
They can decorate their classroom with pictures, calendars, student work, fun-filled fact boards, interactive charts, and positive poster boards relaying moral messages and describing behaviors expected out of the students.

O’connor (2011) wrote, “Students must be cooperative and motivated to learn if a learning environment is to be productive, and parental support is essential for promoting this cooperation and motivation” (cited in Introduction to Teaching: Becoming a Professional, 2014, p. 320). When teachers, parents, and students all work together the students are at a great advantage.
My students will play an equitable role in creating rules for our classroom environment. Together, we will evaluate what appropriate behavior for our classroom is. I will write these rules as positive statements to be displayed in the room and ensure that all students understand the expectations in our class. Students will be made the consequences for failing to abide by the rules that we have collectively made. It is my continuous goal to be firm, kind, and consistent in my approach to rules and consequences.
My classroom will be an enjoyable experience for my students where they will feel safe and respected, and where they will learn to respect others. Ensuring that such an environment exists in my classroom will take a lot of work on my part. From day one I will make sure I develop fair and sensible rules and procedures, and will make these rules clear to all students. I will be fair and consistent in my classroom management procedures as well as in my disciplinary actions. At the same time, I will develop relationships with my students where they understand that I make the rules in the class and that I am also someone in whom they can confide and whom they can trust.
Instructional strategies are essential to be fulfilled in the classroom as it inspires students. Learning can be improved when instructional strategies are tangled to the interest of students. Instructional strategies focuses on educating academic and social skills. Every teacher has a certain goal to achieve with her students in the classroom. To have a successful classroom, a teacher should include several strategies.
I want to have a classroom in which students feel personally altered by their experience in my classroom. Progressivism is one major philosophical approach that I plan to use in my classroom, along with an assertive discipline approach. In my classroom I want students to accomplish new material, learn to overcome the subjects they struggle with and develop confidence in what they do. I hope to help students acquire more of themselves in their education and strengthen their qualities. I not only want them to succeed in subjects but also grow as individuals.
At the end of each school day my students will clean their classroom so they learn to take reasonability for messes they created, this will also allow us to start off on a good note the next day. In my class, we respect ourselves and take care of one another. I will encourage my students to try their personal best in every situation they find themselves in. I will remind students that your personal best effort does not look like your neighbors. I will structure my classroom environment so students can easily collaborate and form positive relationships with one another.
Classroom Management Plan A. Theoretical Introduction Philosophy of classroom management My philosophy of classroom management is characterized by a teacher-centered approach. I believe that the teacher is the leader of the classroom and should determine the learning needs of the students. To have an effective classroom management, I would begin the school year by dedicating some time in educating my students on the class rules, expectations, and consequences. I would strictly emphasize that these rules, expectations, and consequences are to create a pleasing and productive learning environment.

I want to be a classroom managager who supports my students in a community like environment and I believe that this is what I have created.
An effective teacher must be knowledgeable and able to find and use resources in planning lessons to meet the curriculum. I have come to understand the importance of planning. My classroom should be student centered where different learning styles are addressed through different type methods and lessons. I will accommodate and adjust my instruction for the diversity I find in my students. I have to be flexible enough and honest with myself if something isn’t working.
