Hello everyone. I knew I had learned a substantial amount during NTI, but being back in the classroom has helped me to see it clearly. Since being back I have implemented several of the ideas and techniques that I learned. The first was assigning a classroom manager. It went great. In fact after explaining the requirements the seniors got in to a debate about which of them was most qualified to be the first manager. I'm amazed at how something so small has made such a big difference already. Both the students and I have come to rely on the manager. Another idea that I am using are the in boxes for each class. Like clockwork, the kids come in, place their papers in the right place and take a seat. So needless to say we are developing a good routine.
