There are a lot of aspects to managing students and a classroom. This page will focus on strategies that I currently use to manage student behavior. Overall, I use Positive Behavior Interventions & Supports. Our entire district has adopted PBiS. To support PBiS, I also utilize aspects of (1) Bucket-Filling, (2) 1-2-3 Magic, (3) CHAMPS, and (4) Responsive Classroom. I find that there are a lot of overlapping principles within these methods/theories. Check out my Pinterest Behavior Board: One thing I keep in mind is that behavior management is not a “this” or “that” thing – – and students don’t respond in-like to every strategy that I implement. With that in mind, I tend to be fluid in the decisions that I make, to best meet the needs of my students.
