New teachers often feel like they have to prove their ability to teach to students, parents, and colleagues. But it couldn’t be further from the truth. Just landing a job means you are qualified and capable. Learning that you don’t have to do it all in the classroom to showcase your control and ability is quite a freeing truth. Tune in to hear tips on how to pull back to gain control, sanity, and respect in the classroom.
- Strong leaders in the classroom are not the ones on stage, running a tight ship and keeping a serious vibe
- The most successfully run classrooms do not have a laundry list of rules
- You have to know what you want students to do every second, at every turn, for everything
- Keep tasks that require your brilliance for yourself and delegate other tasks to kids
