199: Classroom Management Fundamentals

Did you know that good classroom management can lead to more respect between you and your students?

Let’s talk about what classroom management is and why it’s important. It’s the thing that’s going to set the tone for your classroom as you get back into the swing of things this school year. 

You can put whatever system, program, or philosophy in place that you like, but it won’t be as effective as the values at the foundation of how you run your classroom. 

This episode is about classroom management strategies that determine whether your classroom fails or succeeds. 

Let’s dig into the fundamental values that should be at the core of any classroom management program.

In Today’s Episode We Discuss: 

  • Giving respect to all your students whether or not they’ve earned it 
  • How to avoid giving attention to negative behavior 
  • Communicating clearly with your students 
  • Establishing what respect looks like in your classroom 
  • Perfecting your teacher face 
  • Why you should celebrate when students are following the rules
  • How to set boundaries with your students 
  • Picking your battles 
  • What Kudos Club is and how I use it 


I hope you can see why I’m so passionate about classroom management. I truly believe that setting up your classroom expectations clearly will create success for you and your students throughout the year.
