“Ms. Sarita Arora, Principal of Student Administration of Ekamai International School, Bangkok, was invited by the Faculty of Education to the Alumni Sharing program on Wednesday, October 9, 2019. In her presentation, “Classroom Management: Strategies for Effective Instruction,” she shared some practical tips she learned through the years of experience she had as a teacher and now principal. As shown in research, the most effective lessons happen in classrooms that are well managed. Ma’am Dollie, as addressed by her students, shared her personal journey as a new teacher, and how learning and understanding her students helped her manage her classes better. Ma’am Dollie said her principal told her that no teaching should happen on the first day of school. Instead, it should be used to set the foundation: rules and expectations. I agree with her because even from my experience, if students know what the teacher expects from the very beginning, they will deliver. She also said she has learned not to “lose her cool” in front of the students. In other words, teachers must learn to be patient in dealing with the different types of students in the class.
