The Smart Classroom Management approach works.
It works for elementary school teachers. It works for middle and high school teachers.
It works for new teachers and veterans alike.
It works regardless of where you teach, who your students are, or whether or not you have the most challenging class in the school.
We’ve heard from thousands of teachers who’ve put our strategies into practice and experienced remarkable success.
They can now walk into any classroom in the world, gain control, and create a learning experience their students love being part of.
And so can you.
You can eliminate your stress. You can cut your work hours. You can have the motivated and well-behaved class you’ve always wanted.
But there is one thing that just may be standing in your way.
It’s something I see in the eyes of some of the teachers I coach. On the one hand, after we talk awhile, they’re excited. They’re relieved. They’re eager to get started.
But on the other hand, I see fear.
I see fear because much of what we recommend here at SCM is unconventional. It swims against the tide of what they’ve been told to do since their days as a student teacher.
Our goal here at SMC isn’t for you to just get through the day. It isn’t just to survive. It isn’t just to get a little better with short-sighted strategies you’ve heard a million times before.
Our goal is a complete transformation of your classroom. It’s no less than happy, productive, and well-behaved students that you love teaching.
The loftiness of this expectation—which is doable for any teacher—along with the unique simplicity of SCM, can be scary.
Being exceptionally good at what you do can be scary. Eschewing what other teachers at your school are doing can be scary.
But to be the teacher you know you were meant to be, you must toughen your resolve and push through it. Because fear will give voice to the doubts in your head.
It will give voice to the lie that your class is too far gone and your old habits are too deeply ingrained.
But here’s the straight scoop: You need only push through a little.
Because, once you put our strategies into practice, in a very short time—sometimes minutes—you’ll notice a definitive change in your students.
It may be their calmness. It may be their smiles and eagerness to please you. It may be their attentiveness, respect for the rules, or kindness toward each other.
This doesn’t mean that you’ll have the perfect class right away or that you won’t make mistakes.
But the moment you experience the undeniable proof that the new you is having the desired effect, you’ll know:
I can do this. I can be the teacher I envision for myself.
So cast your fears aside, just for a moment, and put us to the test.
Spend time in our archive, pick up one or more of our books, embrace the philosophy. Learn not just a few of our survival strategies, but the whole enchilada.
Take a small step of faith.
It will change your teaching life forever.
