Classroom Management: The First Step to Effective Teaching
Limited Capacity seats available

All the best teachers at any school have one thing in common—they are great classroom managers. This professional development will help you manage your classroom so you can make a difference and feel like you’re enriching the lives of your students. It explains how real students respond to lessons, not the perfect students in teaching textbooks. Few books outlining classroom management clarify how to handle students when lessons don’t go as planned, but this hour will help you stop the problems before they happen, or minimize the explosive behavior. The system of creating a wolf pack will transform your class into a thriving learning environment.
