Knowing how classroom management is associated with the
effective teacher encouraged me to define management in my class. My philosophy
about classroom management is not far from both Wongs’ and Marzano’s. I believe
in the impact of the first day of school and I am consistent as a fair manager
throughout the academic year. I explain consequences and let the students make
their choice. I encourage my students to seek learning and enduring
understanding. I articulate the proper sequence of the lesson and design
activities that keep my students interested all the time. I always teach for
long-term because I want my students to be influenced by me. I intend to do all
of this in my class, to a certain extent, but I never knew that this is called
Classroom Management Plan.
So, I think I need to sit and ask myself how far am I from
Wongs’ and Marzano’s Classroom Management Plan and how can I achieve creating
my own organized management plan. I think I should start to Identify the common
practices among us, recognize the ones that I lack and order them according to
priorities. I will learn and practice hard to master all of the requirements
that enable me to be an effective teacher. I will use the authors’ finding and
Ideas to build up a solid classroom management plan, and I will not consider
that as stealing. I learned from my reading that I have to keep improving
myself for the sake of my students, the 21st-century children.
I decide to be in the Impact stage because this is what I
want out of my life. I am a responsible teacher and I have to get out Mastery
if I am still there. I will not give up and become a victim and I will do
whatever it takes to reach the Impact.

– I will work cooperatively with colleagues, family, team,
and everyone in the school for the benefit of the children.
– I will make a choice to stop blaming other people and
other things for my circumstances. And make a choice to create my own life and
go ahead and do it.
– I will not be a miserable teacher.
