For years I have done management and discipline trainings for new teachers. For years, those trainings changed little. Recently though, by approach has shifted. I’m now focusing on helping teachers build positive classroom cultures, by attending to three elements:
1. First and most importantly are relationship
2. Second is classroom management
3. Third is classroom safety, which is more accurate term than discipline.
I’m in the process of developing a series of virtual courses for teachers, but also for leaders, because there are some things I think we need to change.
