Knowing how classroom management is associated with theeffective teacher encouraged me to define management in my class. My philosophyabout classroom management is not far from both Wongs’ and Marzano’s. I believein the impact of the first day of school and I am consistent as a fair managerthroughout the academic year.
I explain consequences and let the students maketheir choice. I encourage my students to seek learning and enduringunderstanding. I articulate the proper sequence of the lesson and designactivities that keep my students interested all the time. I always teach forlong-term because I want my students to be influenced by me. I intend to do allof this in my class, to a certain extent, but I never knew that this is calledClassroom Management Plan. So, I think I need to sit and ask myself how far am I fromWongs’ and Marzano’s Classroom Management Plan and how can I achieve creatingmy own organized management plan.
I think I should start to Identify the commonpractices among us, recognize the ones that I lack and order them according topriorities. I will learn and practice hard to master all of the requirementsthat enable me to be an effective teacher. I will use the authors’ finding andIdeas to build up a solid classroom management plan, and I will not considerthat as stealing. I learned from my reading that I have to keep improvingmyself for the sake of my students, the 21st-century children. I decide to be in the Impact stage because this is what Iwant out of my life. I am a responsible teacher and I have to get out Masteryif I am still there.
I will not give up and become a victim and I will dowhatever it takes to reach the Impact.- I will invest in myself so that I increase my value toothers.- I will learn and grow as a professional.
(reading and goingto conferences.)- I will avoid thoughts and people who limit me.- I will work cooperatively with colleagues, family, team,and everyone in the school for the benefit of the children.- I will make a choice to stop blaming other people andother things for my circumstances. And make a choice to create my own life andgo ahead and do it.
– I will not be a miserable teacher.- I will become an effective teacher.
