Behaviour Management

I am convinced that behaviour problems stem from the disengagement of students.


As educators it is our duty to learn to teach how they learn and in return to allow them to teach as we learn. Students know much more than we give them credit. We must allow this learning to surface through an understanding of each individual’s learning patterns.

Don't reward negative behaviour with your attention...that's why they keep doing it!

Students 'muck up' because they are looking for status. Give it to them on your terms or they will take it on theirs.

We must develop a deep understanding of each student's needs.

Walk into a class unhappy, preoccupied, angry, carelessly, and they will respond accordingly.

Student behaviour is revealing to you what the student is thinking and feeling about his life.

Learning is NOT work. I believe we should stop talking and start listening.

Students are always watching…what are we teaching them?
