I believe that every child has a right to learn in my classroom. I believe that every teacher has a right to teach in a safe environment with out outside interference. I believe that classroom management should be creative, will keep my students safe and be based on trust not fear. 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.
Also, my classroom management plan may need to be altered to fit my specific group of students. Implementing a Student-Centered Classroom Management Program My classroom management approach will be student-centered as I will help students to develop a sense of responsibility for their actions. The behavior standards in my classroom will be high and developmentally appropriate for the age I am teaching. The students will play a large role in creating the rules for our classroom community. Together, we will decide what is appropriate behavior for our classroom, and I will write these rules as positive statements to be displayed in the room.
Integrity manifests itself in many ways in the character of a teacher. First, integrity is shown by the effort a teacher gives to his or her students. I believe teachers have a moral obligation to their students to provide them with the best educational opportunities possible.

This I Believe Philosophy statement will include my thoughts and beliefs about classroom management with comparison to other theorists’ models. The major theorists that will be mentioned are Barbara Coloroso, Linda Albert, and Lee & Marlene Canter. I highly agree with the Canter’s and Coloroso’s models of classroom management because it best fits my personality as an individual teacher. I believe that an affective classroom management plan is first practiced and then modeled for improvements. My ultimate goal for my Classroom Management Plan is to model self-discipline by teaching it through my daily actions so that students may be able to self-manage themselves accordingly.
The First Days of School by Wong & Wong states “Teachers universally say they go into teaching to make a difference. You more than make a difference. You ARE the difference.” My role as an educator is to get to know each student as an individual in order to understand their individual unique needs, learning styles, backgrounds, interests and abilities. I believe that there are six key elements to creating a well-rounded philosophy of education; passion, learning, creativity, guiding, engagement and listening. ... ... middle of paper ... ...s are active learners.
Classroom Management Plan A. Theoretical Introduction Philosophy of Classroom Management My philosophy of classroom management is based on the individual relationships I form with each student, on the relationships they form with each other, and on the expectations I place on myself in relationship to my capabilities as a teacher. Just as with adults living together in our global world, I believe that as a teacher, it is my responsibility to recognize the individual differences inherent to every child “living together” in the classroom, and to implement an environment of mutual respect and support of social camaraderie with an ambition towards education. I believe that the structure of classroom management should be facilitated by the teacher, agreed upon by both students and teacher, be open to revision, and be flexible to accommodate for growth and change in the needs of all classroom participants. I believe that part of implementing any form of classroom management is the recognition that “learning” is generated not only through textbooks and lesson plans, but also through interaction and communication prompted as a result of the social learning environment built-in to our classrooms.
My personal philosophy of classroom management focuses on creating an environment where children feel safe and where they feel like they belong. I will create this environment for my fourth grade class through making my expectations of the students clear while developing an engaging lesson plan and personable interactions with my students. I developed my philosophy from studying different theorists and based my philosophy on the theories of Glasser and Kounin. Glasser believed that the teacher’s roll in the classroom is that of a leader rather than a boss. He believed that students should be given power in the classroom and that the teacher should share it with the students.
Hopefully student’s individual behavior choices will promote an overall good classroom behavior that will allow students to learn the content, and learn about each other. I want my classroom management style to reflect on students as individuals, accommodating their own needs. Finally, I have chosen a style that will prevent discipline problems through a variety of measures, through this I hope to diminish disruptive problems and spend as much time “engaged” as possible.

Theories of Teaching and Learning and their Impact on the Classroom Environment Although there are many theories of teaching and learning, this essay will be focusing primarily on professionalism, cognition and language, cognitive views of learning and behaviourism, and how they individually and collectively impact the classroom environment. A professional teacher encompasses essential characteristics to teach at their highest level. They continue to learn throughout their teaching careers and constantly assess themselves and their students. Professionals also have the ability to make decisions in ill defined situations (Eggen & Kauchak, 2010, p. 5) , showing their knowledge and understanding of their students, teaching and the teaching process. Being able to represent topics to students in a way students will understand, and have an understanding of why a topic may be hard or easy for students to comprehend, is an essential skill any teacher needs to support their students.
