|ADVICE FROM SUBSTITUTE TEACHERS
REGARDING CLASSROOM MANAGEMENT.
Classroom discipline starts with self-discipline.
Set rules and boundaries from the beginning and stick to the. Treat each student with respect and they will do the same back. The educator needs to be there for them.
Be flexible and patient.
Something annoying that a student is doing will usually stop with in 40 seconds, so there is no reason to act on everything. They usually stop on their own.
Distractions are part of the learning process.
Greet the students at the door, set expectations early, praise positive behavior, keep moving around the room, breathe, and stay calm.
Wash your hands frequently.
Do you have any “words of wisdom” for other substitutes?
