Classroom Management: Overview

"It must be remembered that the purpose of education is not to fill the minds of students with facts... it is to teach them to think, if that is possible, and always to think for themselves."
-- Robert Hutchins

"As a teacher I feel I have a moral obligation to help the children in my classroom grow toward becoming full human beings and to feel successful. Teaching cognitive skills is not enough..."
-- Jean Medick

"Good teaching is one-fourth preparation and three-fourths theater."
-- Gail Godwin

"Yet, no matter how nuanced or general the solutions may be, establishing and maintaining order is central to what educators do."
-- Grant Miller, Graduate Research Assistant, Boston College
