I know that many of you current and future educators enter the school house doors each year optimistic , dedicated , and as determined as the President of the United States. You have just completed all the educational classes and internships. You walk into the wonderful classroom that you have designed. You have prepared your lesson for the week. You are ready. Then the bell rings and the students walk in. The cursing, the hitting, the disrespect, administration, etc happens. Then What? The book was designed to give basic information that will help novice and veteran teachers alike. You must be prepared for the unexpected. Colleges do not prepare for situations that will occur on a daily basis. I am confident that this research will help you along the way. Feel free to contact me for more help. Remember, you can manage and educate them all. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
