Becoming a successful teacher that is inviting yet assertive is essential in maintaining an orderly and fun classroom. These two characteristics have the ability to exist wonderfully as long as specific strategies are used. One of the things that you should do is ensure that you give praise when it is deserved, but do not give it so much that it ends up decreasing in value. Also be sure that you always have clear objectives before you start your day in order to help you and your students stay on track with the curriculum.
