So that is why I am reading a new "teaching" book. At the very least I am hoping it helps me better express my experience with classroom management. At the most I am hoping it can improve it; after all everything about teaching can always take a little improving. That is how we learn, grow, adapt, etc.
I'm only about seventy pages in so far, but it has been a nice and easy read. And it feels good to have someone else put into words what I have been trying so hard to explain concisely whenever I am asked about classroom management. Its nice to read that I am pretty much doing things the way the fictional Mrs. Allgood would.
The book is... Conscious Classroom Management by Rick Smith. Veteran teacher or newbie, I totally recommend giving it a read. Your local library may even have a copy.
