Classroom Management

The first impressions about a teacher and classroom management come from not only the interaction between the teacher and the student or the teacher and the parent, but from the way the teacher has organized the classroom and the students. To effective teachers, everything is important—the way the classroom is arranged, the plan for displaying materials, the wall displays, lack or presence of clutter, the posting of the classroom expectations, and even the procedures for use of the classroom send a message about the expectations of the teacher.
