Classroom management

This was such a helpful podcast on classroom management and ways to change our thinking! I love how she views management so positively! It’s definitely a change I can implement and should implement in my class! :)

hscontreras ,

Great classroom management tips!

I listened to the classroom management podcast. It was short and sweet but hit all of the main points she discussed really well! As a kinder teacher, I am really excited to try the techniques in my classroom because they could definitely be geared towards lower elementary as well! I can’t wait to listen to more of her podcasts!
