What Is The Most Important Thing to Remember About Classroom Management?

Brittany Peppers asks:

I am excited to follow this blog and learn many things about it as I graduate from college and begin my teaching career. My question to you is "In your opinion, what is one thing to remember about classroom management if you don't remember anything else you are taught about it?"

Brittany, I'm glad you're finding this blog useful, and thanks for asking such a thought-provoking question. I'm looking forward to hearing suggestions from readers.

The response to Brittany's question will be a three-part series:

* Part One will share responses from several authors of books on classroom management whose judgment I respect.

* Part Two will include my response, and responses from other educators who I know and, in most cases, have worked with....

* Part Three will include responses from readers.

Please share your responses in the comments, or, if you prefer, feel free to email them to me.
