I used to think classroom management was just about teaching expectations, routines and procedures & then being consistent in your follow-up with consequences. I read TLAC after my first year teaching, & thought I just needed to develop my "strong voice" and other techniques. Next, @Ramapo4Children taught me that the foundation of classroom management was actually relationship building & role modeling. I also learned to reframe how I viewed student behavior: as a form of communication about unmet needs & lagging skills. Structure alone wasn't enough.
