B: self-management
My personal philosophy of classroom management will begin with self-management. Teaching children self-management will be of great importance for having a successful class each year.

The children will know what is expected of them. They will monitor their own behavior and control their actions through the self-management techniques they have learned. I will introduce them to a behavior responsibility sheet. This sheet will list what is expected from them for the week. This sheet will have to be taken home and signed daily.

This will let him know that I care and I am there for him if he needs anything. He will be more open to talking to me about problems he may be having. I will model good behavior. This will help Joey and the other class members learn how to turn their negative behavior into positive behavior (Fernchild, "Modeling Behaviors of Respect for Children"). I will avoid getting anger and harsh at my students. I will let them know how proud of them I am when they have good behavior. I will never discipline them in front of the class and do it only in private. This will not embarrass him in front of the other students. This will show respect to him and in turn he will learn to respect me. He will feel safe with me and more
