  • Webinar: Classroom Management

    Webinar: Classroom Management

    October 25, 2016 - 6:00pm to 7:00pm

    Developing strong classroom management skills is a critical step for teachers. To help you develop the skills you need, TEA is hosting a Classroom Management webinar designed to look at the day-to-day role of the classroom teacher as a manager. Teachers and education support personnel are given the discretionary power to allocate tasks to students, direct their behavior, and evaluate their performance. This webinar examines strategies, tools, and techniques that create a desirable teaching and learning environment.

    To register, please email dbonner@tnea.org. The webinar is free for TEA members and counts toward professional development points.
