10 Funny Quotes on Classroom Management

The role of teacher is an amazing occupation. Teachers get to see student growth as they learn, retain, and apply important information. They helpfully explain to children how the world functions mathematically, scientifically, historically, and in literature. Annually, teachers across the globe educate millions of children, preparing them for further education and future opportunities.

Teaching, however, is not always easy. Along with pride at the accomplishments of their students, teachers sorrow over the losses and failures of their students. They laugh with and become friends with their pupils. Teachers could feel intense happiness, sadness, anxiety, frustration, and excitement within the hours of a singular school day. To combat the teaching blues and inspire educators, here are 10 humorous quotes on classroom management, education, and the life of a teacher.

1. "When Little People are Overwhelmed by big emotions, it's our job to share our calm, not to join the chaos." - L.R. Knost

Little children can be the most difficult, and most rewarding, to teach. It is easy to get frustrated or upset with students when they misbehave, show disrespect, or cause disruptions during class. When pupils are rowdy, disrespectful, or struggling, teachers should remember to rise above the chaos. They will find it helpful to relax, take deep breaths, and calmly take control of the situation, as opposed to employing outbursts of anger or yelling. As teachers calmly manage the most chaotic of classes, they will better connect with their students and appreciate watching the progression of their growth.

2. "I teach tiny humans, you can't scare me." -

Working with occasionally impractical and unpredictable children can be a daunting task. Teachers often find that after learning to educate a large classroom of little children, any other challenge they meet seems easy.

3. "If you really want to know about the future, don’t ask a technologist, a scientist, a physicist. No! Don’t ask somebody who’s writing code. No, if you want to know what society’s going to be like in 20 years, ask a kindergarten teacher." - Clifford Stoll

While technologists, scientists, and technicians know a lot about the world, only the future generations can determine what the world will be like. Teachers are privileged to have a preview at what the future of their communities, countries, and the world will be like as they teach their pupils and watch them grow.

4. "A teacher’s job is to take a bunch of live wires and see that they are well-grounded." - Darwin D. Martin

To teachers, a classroom full of wily, energetic students can easily seem like a room full of live wires, all with unlimited potential for good or bad. As a practical technician sees that wires are well-grounded, so do teachers provide foundations for academic learning that will positively impact their students for the rest of their lives.

5. "Being a new teacher is like trying to fly an airplane while building it." - Rick Smith

To new educators, teaching is not easy. It can be an intimidating, complex process. It may feel as though teachers are trying to manage their classroom while barely understanding the basics of education. Not to worry; teaching is all about trial and error. As teachers continue to practice helpful, proven teaching methods and do what works best for their class, they will quickly be able to organize their classrooms and navigate all the complexities of being a first-time teacher.

6. "Teaching is easy. It's like riding a bike. Except the bike is on fire, and you're on fire, and everything is on fire." -Anonymous

While some people suggest that teaching is any easy profession that requires little to no effort, the truth is quite the opposite. Sometimes, teaching can feel like a confusing disaster. The trick, however, is to keep trying.

7. "As long as teachers give tests, there will be prayer in schools" - Anonymous

While many schools around the world have disbanded prayer or religious worship at school, this quote proves to teachers that as long as students are assigned difficult material or exams, they will turn to any possible source, searching for as much quick help as they can get.

8. "One child, one teacher, one book, one pen can change the world." - Malala Yousafzai

Malala Yousafzai sacrificed everything for the chance to receive a good education. Her story inspirationally reminds educators that they have the power to change the lives of their students, and the world.

9. "I never teach my pupils, I only attempt to provide conditions in which they can learn." - Albert Einstein

While transferring information from teacher to student is an important part of education, the most critical part of a pupil’s academic study is that they have an organized place where they can learn, grow, and discover new ideas.

10. "I’ve come to a frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element in the classroom. It’s my personal approach that creates the climate. It’s my daily mood that makes the weather. As a teacher, I possess a tremendous power to make a child’s life miserable or joyous. I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration. I can humiliate or heal. In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis will be escalated or de-escalated and a child humanized or dehumanized." -Haim Ginott

Teachers have immense responsibilities. Their actions will not only shape the dynamic of their classrooms, but the lives of their students, the functions of their communities, and the prosperity of their countries. This is an important, intimidating task, one that has been assigned to some of the most compassionate, educated, and capable human beings in the world. As teachers learn to envision the end goal when instructing their students, they will see greater satisfaction at work and find joy through the lives of their pupils.
