Ralph Waldo said, "You will only see what you are prepared to
see." As a new teacher, you'll see more and more each year and
understand how to eliminate the problems. Basically, they are
doing what you allow. This is the bottom line for every
teacher. The trick is learning to control your own routines
(your actions) with skill. There are too many ideas to go over
so I would recommend reading good classroom management books.
Here's a link to articles that I have written from ideas in my
book. http://bit.ly/dp3tvA Also linked below. Hope this
helps. Good luck.
