Philosophy of Classroom Management
My philosophy of education is to make learning fun and enjoyable, therefore my philosophy for classroom management should reflect this. Respect, structure, and communication are the main elements of my philosophy for classroom management. In this paper I will be discussing: how I will ensure the mood that I had created in the beginning of the year will remain constant until the end of the year, and I will mention activities and strategies that I will use in my classroom.
As the teacher, I will set my classroom up in a very positive manner. This way my students will feel comfortable in my room the first day they walk in, and feel less apprehensive. I will achieve this by using vibrant colors, putting up pictures, personalizing the classroom by putting the students’ names around the room, decorating my bulletin boards, and I will have my students help me come up with rules of the classroom. By letting them help create the rules, I feel that they will be more apt to follow them. Creating and implementing my learning environment, will include very careful planning from the start of the year. The learning environment must be envisioned in both a physical and cognitive space. Physical space includes how the teacher creates the environment of her classroom (how the teacher decorates, sets up the desks). Cognitive space includes the expectations set by the teacher for the students, and creating a motivational climate (http://education.stateuniversity.com). Based on this information, I will develop a varied curriculum, which will spark an interest in the students mind, so that they will have the desire to get involved in my class. This varied curriculum will also be made flexible enough so that it will compliment the many different learning styles in my class.
