Discover the New Relationship-Based Classroom Management System That Gave Me a Calm, Well-Behaved Class …Whilst Rarely Raising My Voice
Let’s face it teachers, we need help with getting better relationships with increasingly difficult students!
There is so much for teachers to cope with in the 21st century and not all of it has to do with technology! Yes, teachers may struggle with workload, but sometimes, we also struggle with poorly behaved, disengaged students that don’t want to be in our classrooms.
- Did you know that 40% of new teachers leave the profession within 5 years?
- Did you know that student management is one of the main causes of this exodus?
- Did you know that many new teachers are unhappy with their classroom management training gained at University?
Let’s get real here- teaching is a difficult and demanding job.
- It can be frustrating. It can be confrontational. It can be emotionally draining. It can be tiring. And yes, it can be rewarding
Sometimes skills need boosting. Sometimes new ideas can be our saviour. Sometimes one idea can make a huge change in your ability to negotiate with students, parents and colleagues.
In teaching, we know the key to making school life a great experience for our students and ourselves, is relationships built on an effective classroom management system.
Relationships and Connections!
Many teachers start in the profession because they think they already have good relationships. Some have very little classroom management. They don't know how to really run a class with control and engagement. After all, the parents and especially the students have changed significantly- teachers must change too!
For years I thought that the only way to run a classroom was to be a ‘dragon’ lady. I believed if you were too nice to kids they would just take advantage of you and ‘run amuck’. However, I didn’t want to be a bully ruling by fear...I wanted to find another way.
That is why I studied the best of behavioural change research and got qualifications in training and development so I could find a better way to approach this area.
Through my extensive studies and studying the way in which ultra-successful, calm and composed teachers operate I discovered that there is a hidden component to success in the class room.
The real secret to class room connections is to discover how to build positive respectful and genuine relationships with your students and parents. Out of that relationship you will build at a minimum, mutual respect and sometimes even a desire for learning amongst those students who had never shown any interest in the past. This is what I can begin to show you in my series of connection classes for teachers.
