Classroom Behavior Essay

Improved Essays
Last week, Nicki and Emily came to class and talked about behavior challenges in the classroom. It was very nice to hear what to prepare for as we go into classrooms, which have some of these problems. Every classroom has a child that has some kind of disability, and it was nice to hear their experiences. I think they did a great job on explaining the content. I really liked how they said to start every year with a clean slate. I think that is so important to teachers and to students. I remember in high school, some teachers already had a view about me, before I was even their student. They had the view that they did because they already taught my two older cousins and my older sister. It was a good thing and a bad thing. Sometimes …show more content…
I honestly believe a lot in the first secret “Don’t take anything personal, from students or their parents.” I think that is a good ingredient, because there will be so many times when your students will get mad at you for not being fair, or doing something they don’t agree with. Which causes students to act out and say things that they don’t mean, they are just heated in the moment and children don’t know how to use their filter. I have a feeling at parent teacher conferences is when the most “hate” would come from the parents. If their child isn’t doing as well as they expected, they will blame it on the teacher, and it shouldn’t be blamed completely on the teacher. I also like how one of the girls said to not let the relationship you have with a parent, influence the relationship that you have with the student. It was great information to hear that you should always do your best to have the child succeed and put aside your feelings towards his or her parents. I’ve heard from countless teachers that the relationships you have with your students are the most important thing. I also liked what Nicki said about kids that don’t have a good home life, need you the most. If they aren’t getting the attention they want/need at home they are going to look every other place that they can for it. In my level 1 and 2’s I have built great relationships with my students. I have found out their strengths and weaknesses, likes and

    That will hopefully assuage my fears and get rid of some of the nervousness. Kids really pick up on that – I had one student respond in his feedback for the Tuesday lesson with this advice: “Don’t be stressed. Your [sic] a great teacher.” I need to take his advice. • Get more large-group teaching experience in a school setting with middle schoolers.

    The Importance Of Parents

    “Nowadays, most of the students are forced to opt a career according to the choice of their parents” (Education). The idea that parents are always right, and children must listen to their parents because parents know what it is good or bad for their children. It is an obsolete idea that needs to change. Parents who always love their children with all their heart and hope everything good happen to them. Therefore, they give everything that is good for children, and they want to protect them as much as they can.…

    Teacher mentioned that she always tries to avoid threatening the child about something that will be done if they don’t do what they are asked to. For example, if the entire class will have an end of the school year field trip and the teacher constantly tell the child that if they continue to misbehave they will not be going to the trip, this will only make the situation worse. The student will think that they will not be allowed to attend the trip because of misconduct, so the student will create anger against the teacher and will continue giving her a hard time throughout the rest of the year. According to Thomas Gordon avoiding threats will only initiate a never ending argument between the student and the teacher (Snowman, McCown, Biehler, 2009, p. 460). Another fact stated by Gordon is that the student may actually gain prestige by provoking the teacher successfully.…

    Elizabeth Paul’s class. She taught a kindergarten class with nineteen students. The class contained mostly Caucasian children, there was one African American boy, and three of Hispanic Origin and one multiracial female, the rest were Caucasian. I noticed the classroom was well label and remembering back to when I was this age they had the typical ABC chart and word wall chart hanging through out the room.

    Teacher Career Obstacles

    As a child I was different, I waited for the weekends to be over, since once the weekdays started I entered my favorite environment, the classroom. For my entire life I have wanted to be a teacher, I feel the order and success that the classroom promotes. My teachers taught me more than basic education, they taught me that it is a teachers role to help students learn to live in the real world, and obey the system that is put there for their benefit. My passion exploded when I was adopted by the vice-principle of the local middle school. I have been blessed to spend time with him and see the interworking’s of a school, and how they impact children’s lives in ways nobody else can do.…

    There should not be standardized testing in schools because, parents don't want their kids taking it, it is a waste of time, and causes too much stress on students and teachers. Parents don't trust the people who have access to the SBAC scores.Additionally kids spend an average of the day taking a test. As well as, stress is building up on them and impacting their self-esteem. The standardized tests are well known for testing a child's level of academic abilities but, I trust my teachers opinion on making test, not the computer, maybe pen and paper is the way to go. Some parents don't want their kids taking standardized tests because they don't trust Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act.…

    Cultural Abilities

    We all need to be more socially and culturally aware. I found a real connection with this article when they were discussing how critical it is for teachers to establish a culture in their own classrooms by having the same sets of rules and values across the community. I feel that now that the district has a school wide plan, we are finally creating the community in the school that was lacking. All teachers and students are abiding by the same rules and when teachers see a student doing one of the good acts we reward them with a pride ticket. After a few weeks, teachers then have students count their tickets to see who has earned a special treat that is given school wide.…

    Mrs. Crawford had some good tips on classroom management. For example, she never sends a child to the principal unless they are harming themselves or someone else. She does this because she feels that sending a child to the principal sends the message that she does not want to deal with the child; that he or she is too difficult for her. She says that it losses the teachers authority when they regularly send students to the principal. In addition, the whole first grade will be using the clip chart system this year.…

    My Classroom Observation

    The students take these jobs very seriously, and it gives them a responsibility that helps the class run smoothly each day. This is something I will definitely like to incorporate into my future classroom. If I were to teach an older grade, I would just change the jobs to ones that fit our specific classroom needs. I also love how my teacher incorporates a talking circle into our mornings every single day. Everyday my collaborative teacher, the paraprofessional, our twenty-one students, and myself sit in the front of the room around the rug and each person shares a short bit of information with the class.…

    I joined clubs and got involved, I worked with my teachers so that I could learn to my full potential. My junior year was incredible, and I am positive that I would not have had the same experience anywhere else. Starting off my senior year, I was again extremely excited. Yes, that may sound "nerdy" but I love school. And I attribute that love of school to minarets.…
