In an ideal world, I really believe that the majority of people who are involved in education, whether they're a teacher, administrator, coach, counselor, are anything else, would have a genuine care for kids.

Starting with a new class can be intimidating especially when it comes to managing a class. While new teachers cannot change themselves , they can find ways to adjust and monitor their behavior. Once they know their own personality and management style, they can then use that information to prevent discipline problems all throughout the school year.
