By working as an assistance with the lead teacher in a classroom, I have a broad knowledge of how to connect with children on a more personal and professional basis. As a teacher I will be able to help change and impact my students’ lives by enlisting an effective classroom management plan. I will want my students to know that I will devote a nurturing, caring, and supportive environment that will give them confidence to succeed. Also I want my students to view me as someone supportive and being there for them and provide a safe and proficient classroom setting. With this I will present my classroom management plan for my classroom. 1.Specify how you will present and conduct your self. As a teacher I will: A.Have an effective classroom procedures and consistency within the class. B.Be kind, courteous, tactful, and gentle, but firm.
C.Be in control and supervise my students’ actions.
D.Be able to guide my students and give advice when asked.
E.Be able to develop a discipline plan which I am comfortable with.(lecture, 2010) F.Be enthusiastic about teaching my students.
G.Use positive speech, body language, and facial expressions.(lecture, 2010) H.Be an attentive listener towards the students.
I.Give praise often for a job well done.
J.Have a trusting relationship with the students and their parents. By becoming a good teacher, he/she must always dress appropriately as a professional educator by presenting and conducting themselves in positive manner where the students are respected and they respect you, this will help the teacher be effective in teaching his/her class. 2.Specify behavioral goals for your students.

Some behavioral goals I will set for my students are for them to: A.To identify expectations that is set for student’s behavior. B.Be on time for class.
C.Raise their hands before speaking.

E.Follow routines, instructions and directions in class.
F.Show responsibility and be respective
G.Be polite and courteous to their peers
H.Be cooperative and attentive
To ensure the students to behave successfully the teacher must involve the students to where they will take responsibility and be accountable for his/her behavior. By implementing William Glasser choice theory, he states that it is “better to emphasize student behavior is determined by student choice, not teacher control” (Charles, 2010). 3.Describe the classroom conditions you will provide. In a classroom there are conditions a teacher should provide to promote student learning. Some classroom conditions I will provide are: A.To position the desk where the teacher can see the door and being able to observe and monitor students at all times. B.To have traffic lanes and often used areas easily accessible and unobstructed. C.Have classroom materials such as books and reference materials ready and available. D.Have effective and up to date equipment accessible.
E.To have comfortable areas for learning and multiple activities centers. F.The walls decorated with positive images, words and work created by students. G.Have instructional displays and presentations where students can see them. H.Have efficient lighting.
