Classroom Management Techniques to Combat Stress

The stresses of the teaching profession can seem insurmountable, from an classroom management to-do list to lesson plans to discipline situations that need your attention. It’s imperative that you use classroom management techniques to deal with stress.
Today on, frequent contributing writer Janelle Cox, who is a veteran elementary school educator based in Upstate New York, looks at five techniques that should greatly help you deal with nascent stress issues.
Janelle’s ideas (and detailed how-to’s on each) include:
  • How to Use Classroom Management to Be Grateful
  • Embrace Your Feelings
  • Don’t Beat Yourself Up
  • And More!

Janelle sums up her article like this: “By becoming aware of your feelings and emotions, living in the moment, and learning how to take a moment to just breathe, you can overcome stress. Don’t be afraid to ask for help, and do not beat yourself up. You can do this.”
