I have to add something on classroom management. It seems whenever I have
some problem, it's because I didn't have things as prepared and ready to
move as smoothly as possible or sometimes the student comes in with a
problem that has nothing to do with my class (or your class) I agree that
we need to build a good relationship with the students and try to have
them see that behaving well is beneficial to all.

When i taught English I did have a lot of those "last chance" types of
groups and I found that being calm in face of the storms of their emotions
and continuing to let them know I liked them and was interested in them
resulted in good behavior most of the time. Sometimes this is hard to do,
but not getting too excited about some of the crazy stuff helps. Oh well,
of course, just when everything is going too well...(finish the sentence)
