Struggling with classroom management? You’re not alone.
I’ve spent years of my career flailing as I dealt with every imaginable issue that could possibly arise in my middle school classroom. Things like, but not limited to:
- Fights in my classroom
- Inclusion fiascos of every imaginable kind
- Blame from administrators for sending “too many” kids to the office
- Class sizes of over 30
- All boys and all girls classrooms
- Laptops/cell phones
Throughout my journey, I made it my mission to chronicle everything I’ve learned about what it means to show up every day for a group of adolescents and make a difference. The 118 pages of this book are the result of my 8 years teaching middle grades. Every tear I‘ve cried and every conversation I’ve had with other educators has contributed to the production and publication of the words you’re reading here. I’m passionate about teachers who are new or struggling because I know what it feels like.
In my writing, I aim to be incredibly frank. I know your time is precious, so my purpose is to provide you with clear takeaways; strategies you can implement tomorrow.
