1. Managing the classroom is quite more complex than what it seems. It deals with space, time, activities, personal presentation, using our voice appropiately, and dealing with difficult situations.

2. The teacher in the classroom

3. Proximity

3.1. The teacher must be wise enough to know how close he can be to his students. He will know that from interacting and paying attention to their reactions.

4. Appropriacy

5. Movement

5.1. This is all about the teacher's personal preferences whether to move that much or not, but what we have to consider is that we need to attract students, engage students even with our movements!
