For those of you considering becoming teachers, take it from me, the husband and father of teachers, one of the toughest skills to master is class management.
To help you with class management, there are books available.
One book, in our TAC library, is “The First Day of School” by Rosemary and Harry Wong. This book, in its many editions is very helpful.
Another great book is “Teach Like A Champion” by Doug Lemov. This is the book which Great Hearts Academies gives to all new teachers at the orientation meeting. Do yourself a favor and read it now.
Our Head Librarian, Richena Curphey, may have other suggestions as well.
