                                            Being a teacher is one of the most challenging
                                            professions. This is due to the many students a
                                            teacher needs to adjust to every single day and
                                            possibly in different settings. Often times, the
                                               profession can be overwhelming that educators may
                                               not know hot to deal with issues inside the
classroom. There will always be a student or a number of students who are difficult to discipline.
What makes this worse is the fact that the behavior of one affects the behavior of others. In
addition to this, the effectiveness of a teacher is questioned whenever one or two students are
not performing.

Fortunately, there have been many techniques developed by teachers that have earned their
Ed.D in education. These professionals have dedicated their precious time in compiling all their
experiences, their theories and theories from the past regarding classroom management and
compiled them in behavior management books.

Behavior management books contain information that each and every teacher must be equipped
with. Teachers are challenged everyday and it seems that no matter what they do, they can't get
to discipline everyone in the class. Behavior management books will supply educators with all
the effective techniques in disciplining students.

There are behavior management books designed to discuss effective techniques on classroom
management on specific levels. The truth is, some techniques can be used for all levels while
some techniques can be used only on a college classroom setting or a pre school classroom
setting. The same reason why some pre school teachers are not fit for the college setting and
why some teachers can teach in any setting.

Teachers will learn from behavior management books that learning how to discipline students is
not an overnight process. Wanting to see results right away is the reason why some teachers
give up right away. The truth is, classroom discipline is a process and steps must be followed in
order to become successful. Thus, teachers should not get frustrated right away. Behavior
management books will serve as a guide to make sure that teachers are able to follow each step

In addition to this, the success of discipline techniques involves knowing which techniques work
and which backfire. More often than not, teachers base their classroom management techniques
on what they think would work without extensively studying the process and the possible
consequences. A classic example of discipline techniques that backfire is constantly reminding
students that the teacher is in authority or that he is "the boss". Another is yelling and insisting on
having the last word. Most educators think that these work, but it doesn't. There are many more
techniques that backfire. It is essential to know each one.

Being a teacher is a profession that must be taken seriously. Teachers act as second parents or
guardians to students. In addition to the primary role of teaching academic subjects, teaching
involves inculcating values and behavior such as proper discipline in the classroom. Behavior
management books will aid in making this task more possible and more effective as well.
