Effective School Discipline As a general rule, the more school discipline issues that you handle directly and on the spot, the higher your status will be amongst your pupils. Use assertive discipline , raise and lower your status at will, create a positive learning frame and learn to create rapport on a regular basis, and in the long-term, most of the behavior management problems that you encountered at the start of your teaching career will disappear. This is because, in time, the children that you teach will come to know what to expect, both from you and your lessons. You will have established firm boundaries, in terms of school discipline, so that the pupils will have no need to go in search of them. After a few terms or a year or two in a school, your 'reputation' amongst the pupils that you teach will have spread. Both staff and pupils will at some point make a judgement about your ability as a teacher and you will feel settled and 'accepted' by all.
