School-wide management strategies will be shared, helping staff ensure that the school day runs smoothly and instructional time is maximized. Procedures that will be developed and implemented will include (but are not limited to) arrival, dismissal, make-up work, substitute teachers, class and activity transitions, etc. Management techniques will be discussed within the context of Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, focusing on the importance of a structured environment as it pertains to student growth and development.
Staff will be encouraged to identify areas that are currently causing them to have “less than effective” management issues within their classrooms. Seroyer will provide staff with ideas and resources that they can use to assist them as they work towards addressing these issues and creating a structured learning environment that will ensure that their students feel safe and that their instructional time is maximized. The ultimate goal is to understand the value of a well-managed classroom and to walk away with tools to develop customized and highly effective classroom management plans.
