Comment: Re: Classroom Management: Dicipline
Hi, Andrew   I'm retired but taught music on all levels during my 37 years in the classroom.  There are no set techniques that work for everyone.  A lot has to do with the teacher's personality. I believe the tone for discipline begins the minute the student walks into the classroom.  Say hel...
