                                                     Classroom
                                                     management is a
                                                     proficiency that all
                                                     teachers must both
                                                     profess and master.
                                                     But with the different
                                                     positions students
each year, the class rules should be changed to accommodate a new
class of individuals. New teachers in particular are often confronted
with this kind of predicament in the classroom control. Because they do
not have enough experience yet with regard to classroom
management. With that said, they often feel incompetent, which leads
to frustration.

This article is meant for instructors who have no clear understanding on
how to manage a classroom and students. The next step is simple to
follow at first. But to put dedication and making this a habit, it would be
a continuous lifelong process. What would you need is a sense of focus
and commitment to do all this on a daily or weekly basis. Translate this
into practice will certainly make your teaching life easier and more
effective in the long run.

Step 1: Always plan ahead. Before the school year begins, each
teacher is responsible for preparing a whole school year, lessons and
activities. Much more self-tasks, quizzes and rules must also be ready.
Although you can do this month as the school progresses, your plans
will serve as guides to where you want to keep your students. This is also
a clear manifestation that you are in control of what you teach and
what you are imparting. The classroom rules as much as possible to be
repeated, and stated so that students know how to properly act in
class.

Step 2: Classroom Organization. When we talk about classroom
organization not only focus on how your presentations are scheduled
daily. It is only a branch that extends much more. Another thing that
teachers need to organize, are the things that are tangible in the room.
This taps how chairs and tables are placed, how clean the room is and
how things are in place. Cleanliness is an important key in
strengthening students' learning experience. The more organized room,
the better the atmosphere will be for education.
Step 3: Consistency. A common disadvantage of teachers, which
affects nearly everyone, is their consistency. They are often severe
during the first few months, but ultimately such a value is slowly
demolished. True, the rules now and then, but oftentimes mentors
would tweak them. In addition, learn properly defined, but months
after the lectures are not met, making experience behind and
inadequate. Thus, as a teacher you must be the first to follow your rules
and to implement it in the classroom.

The three phases are equally workable procedures are proposed that
any teacher who strive for more. Even the most experienced can
actually get some ideas from the proposed rules. The important thing is
to put all these questions and more practice and live with it every day.
Classroom management is really difficult, but with the correct dose of
patience and perseverance, could any mentor ultimately resolve said
hurdle.
