How Do I Keep My Students Quiet?

“I am convinced that classroom management is the key to success in teaching. It is something about which I have become passionate. Why? Because poorly managed classrooms waste the time and the lives of everyone involved. As a teacher, I hate it when I allow my students to be out of control. As a student, I don’t learn as much as I should. Either way, it is a no-win situation.” Joel from (@sywtt)

    I’d forgotten I said that. It’s still true.

    It is truly wonderful to see a site for those who want to succeed in teaching in a climate of so much, “You want to teach??????”. Great job of puttting it all together.

      Thank you for the comment. I still believe that teaching is the best profession in the world, even if it doesn’t seem to be the most popular opinion. Thanks again. Sam
