You want to show that you never lose control without sounding like a tyrant. Explain that you set routines that help students stay focused and that you have the rules clearly posted on the wall. Donâ€™t tell them that youâ€™ll just send the delinquent kid to the principalâ€™s office. This shows that you donâ€™t really have a handle on your classroom â€“ and that youâ€™re willing to pass off a problem to someone else. Of course if you kid commits an egregious act of violence or starts screaming and doesnâ€™t stop, you should send your kid to the office because no amount of â€œhandlingâ€ is going to resolve that. Something else that may be a good answer is to suggest that your kids wonâ€™t be acting out because your lesson plans are so exciting and interesting.
