It is my goal that my parents feel welcomed within my classroom. I would hope that my parents feel free to reach out about their concerns, or if they need help themselves. As a teacher I have a responsibility not only to my students, but their parents as well. I am willing to my make myself available in a manner that is professional. To communicate with parents throughout the school year, I will use modern technology ( website, phone, email), teacher/ parent/ student information sheet, parent- teacher journal and parent conferences to communicate with parents, and other... ... middle of paper ... ...self I let my child know I will always know what takes place in the classroom.
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. I will ensure that all students understand the expectations of our classroom. Students will be made aware what the consequences for breaking the rules of our classroom community are. I will strive to be firm, kind, and consistent in my approach to rules and rule breaking. My goal will be to create a calm, safe, and orderly classroom - one in which I can teach and my students can learn.
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. Before developing the curriculum for the year, I will make sure I am more than knowledgeable in the subjects I’ll be teaching. In order to teach my students what they need to know, I must be comfortable and confident in myself and my knowledge base. This confidence is also necessary in order to display to my students the love I will have for what I am teaching. Through my enthusiasm, I hope to impart a love and desire for learning into my students.
This is where classroom management is important for a teacher as ‘the education process, which aims to form positive behaviour on the students, starts at this point’ (Behcet, 2012, p. 2901), the beginning to shape students and gain their respect before it is too late. There is no right or wrong, but finding and creating a system that works for the teacher and the class diversity will promote a positive learning environment for all students. This then relates to my professional practice as going into a new classroom that I am not familiar with and finding a system that works for me to help promote a positive learning environment. The purpose of this study is to determine teachers’ and students’ perspectives in relation to positive classroom management strategies. The following research questions will be addressed from both a teachers and students point of view: 1.
I am going from civil and strong relationships with students, my staff, as well as make sure the students have good relationships with each other. A Teacher-Student relationship is super important to me. This type of relationship is important because it affects the student 's learning and the respect they have for me. Students want an educator they can also ask for help without being scared. Having this strong connection with my students will help the child’s ambition to learn and come to class which is my goal.
Knowing my students will create an atmosphere of effective communication between me and their parents. Students will be aware of class procedures and routine activities. I will plan, prepare, and diagnose the instructional aides used to achieve educational objectives. I will help students use interpersonal communication skills, become problem solvers, and self-discipline themselves. Without structure, preventing disruptive behavior, and knowing your student, academic student achievement will not be achieved in a classroom.

One of the summer meetings that I would have with my assistant principals would be exclusively on the Code of Ethics for educators and the Student Code of conduct. During this meeting I would distribute both documents to them explaining my intentions of running an ethical school. I would explain to them that I would expect them to follow the Educators Code of Ethics. I would make them aware of their importance in accomplishing this difficult endeavor, and explain to them my beliefs about being honest, respectful and fair.
There are many different ways to run a successful and effective classroom. Numerous people have tried to give me the best advice for making things work, but ultimately it will be my choice to decide what works best for me. By assessing the students' needs, I will be able to provide a curriculum and classroom environment that will hopefully motivate their learning. In assessing my own needs, I can make the proper actions necessary to make sure that those needs are met. Rules and consequences fall under both the needs of the student and the teacher, so those are essential as well.
Abstract My classroom management philosophy is a constant work in progress, but based off of personal experiences and major management theorists I have developed a basic philosophy to guide me through student teaching and the early years as a teacher. The core principles of my philosophy are rooted in establishing a classroom community and mutual respect between students and the teacher. The following essay outlines the theorists that have impacted my philosophy as well as ways I plan to implement my management philosophy. The foundation of an effective classroom is a strong, supportive classroom management plan. The first hurdle many new teachers have to overcome is the ability to maintain control of the classroom they are teaching.
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. As I have learned from working in classrooms, providing students with that high leve... ... middle of paper ... ...ularly evaluating both my classroom and myself and making changes whenever necessary. I want to teach my students to continue to learn and grow, even after they have left my classroom.
