 Classroom Management

Bring a classroom together is a big job and on a regular basis we often change things when it doesn't work.  This area of the website is designed for teaching mums and governesses.  If you need ideas or have items to add send it in to govaust@governessaustralia with a explanation.

Setup of Classroom 

First you need to look at the Schoolroom Setup page which has reasons why I set my schoolroom up in different ways.  It also has suggested items for the schoolroom.  My favourite place to get things is IKEA. Check out the things to look to buy or make to improve you classroom, general setup tips


Planning & Timetables

Organisation is the key.  The Timetables and Planners page has a variety of charts used by governesses over the years.  The key is to adjust them to suit you.  I will use the teacher planner for my own cross of list but always do a kid friendly one to help them with their own routines and develop independance from preschool onwards.


Behavior Management

There are many areas covered on the Behavour Management page; rules, responsibilities, behavouir and positive resinforcement.  It includes some of the things I have collected over the years.  It is a hard area to approach and I am always available on email for confidential chats. including rules & praise ideas


Running the Classroom

The Running the Classroom page is full of tips from govies including some FAQ', concentration suggestions, timefillers, etc.
