Classroom Management 101

Classroom management is so much more than 'getting kids to behave' - it is a balance between relationships and expectations. These two must be aligned in order to run the classroom at a rigorous level. High expectations comes at the price of strong relationships. Without investing in your relationships with your students, you will not be able to ask them to push themselves or to work even harder. Once they know that you believe in them, they'll be more likely to work harder and believe in their own abilities.
