A well-managed classroom involves the teacher, the physical facilities and the routines of class, preparations, interactions and procedures.

The teacher must establish routines for every part of class from entering the classroom, sitting, answering questions of the teachers putting away books, getting pencils, listening and interacting of the pupils.

The teacher in a well-managed classroom has a plan, a structure and guidelines communicated to and understood by the pupils. He/she recognizes different types of behavior appropriate for the variety of instructional approaches used. Putting order in the classroom results for optimum learning.

He or she organized. Has a place for everything. He or she sticks to a schedule all the materials used as much as possible. The teacher proceeds smoothly from one activity to another. Home visitations to understand more students behavior are being done.

All classroom teachers must recognize that management and instruction are not entirely separate tasks but are aspects of the teachers role that continuously affect and reinforce one another.

A good and efficient teacher makes way to promote self-management, rather than an entirely teacher-managed classroom; at the same time uses tactics to prevent pupil misbehavior from occurring, rather than using strategies to deal with it once it arises. In other words, he or she must demonstrate leadership-must be definite, be in control and be directive.

The bottom line is the maintenance of an atmosphere in which pupils can learn in an environment that is both intellectually stimulating and physically and emotionally safe. Surely, to obtain a well-managed classroom is a complex task.
