How do you handle discipline and motivate children?

1 Answers

Different situations warrant different levels of discipline, so give specific examples that provide adequate context. Some forms of discipline include involving parents, taking away privileges, detention, etc. As far as motivating students, my opinion says hire great teachers. Find ways to get the kids excited about learning, which starts with a teacher who is excited about teaching. Beyond great teachers, some students need one-on-one attention in order to get the wheels turning. Less

I had previously worked in customer service for 6 years and was manager for the last 3 of those, so I just used my experiences from that job. My advice would be: Be calm, friendly, and just be yourself. They really just want to see that you are friendly, kind and that you will be a good fit with the children and the other employees. Less
