It is extremely important to keep control and manage your class to be able to teach effectively. However, learning how to reduce misbehavior in the classroom can be quite complicated. Consistency is key. You should have a plan of action for those who overstep the boundaries. Build relationships with the students that help them to learn while managing their emotions. Positive relationships help students grow emotionally and allow them to make decisions responsibly when it comes to their interactions in the classroom. More importantly, you should keep students engaged and focused.

This is where the importance of knowing your students comes in. The better you know your students in their capacity as learners, including their interests, weaknesses, and strengths, the easier it will be to help them to be successful in the academic setting.

Bullying can have a negative impact on the physical, emotional, and mental health of a student. It can take many forms, such as physical threat, harassment, teasing, violence, and in today’s age of social media, cyberbullying. Children who fall prey to bullying usually have low self-esteem, have difficulty focusing on their studies, and in extreme cases, have thoughts of suicide. This is why it’s important that teachers know how to address bullying.
