    I'm a first year teacher and have much to learn, but one thing that I have down is classroom management. I have the students get into two lines because it makes the line shorter and easier for me to manage. If the students can't get from point A to point B the way I expect them to (quietly with their hand to their sides) we go back to the classroom ( no matter how close we are to our destination or how late we are) and start over. They hate doing that. Obviously I did that many times at the begining of the school year. At this point I don't have to do that anymore. They even get compliments on what a good class they are in the hall ways. The important part is to stick to it until they get it and no matter how minor the disruption go back.
