Classroom management aims at encouraging and establishing student self-control through a process of promoting positive student achievement and behavior. It is often one of the most challenging skills for educators to master and new strategies are always emerging. Building relationships with our students is the most effective tool that we can use and making sure that we take time to do that is an essential part of effective classroom management. Below are some resources that can be used to help even the most experienced teachers. If you need additional support, please contact your PBIS coach.
How Can I Get Involved?
In order for us to achieve our goal of creating a positive, safe and welcoming school environment, we need to have full commitment and participation from the whole school community. PBIS implementation begins with training a diverse team of school staff that is representative of the whole school and is led by a staff member, rather than the administrator, in order to foster buy-in. Most teams are comprised of teachers, administrators, counselors, psychologists, mental health therapists, family members, custodians, campus supervisors, and other classified staff. Every school has a PBIS team that meets on a regular basis, and your participation on this team is encouraged. If being part of this proactive team sounds interesting to you, please speak with your administration or your PBIS coach.
