Disciplining Students
One of my biggest weaknesses is confrontation. My whole life I've struggled with being a confrontational person, and I Worry that once I begin teaching I will still struggle with this in the classroom. I know how easy it is to lose control over a classroom, and the importance of disciplining students and correcting misbehavior before it spreads. But if anyone else has struggled with confrontation like I do, what measures should I take to become comfortable with confrontation?

Classroom management is a huge factor into keeping a well manged room, but what you can do is start the year off by showing the students your rules and show them who is boss. As long as you have a good foundation you should not have a problem.

Yes, firm rules, but don't show them "who's boss." This classroom needs to be a partnership for it to run smoothly!

Discipling a student is NOT about confrontation. When you run a classroom, you need rapport. Additionally, you can manage a classroom often with a glance or proximity. You should never fight with a student. Do not engage in power struggles!

Classroom management does heavily rely on confrontation with students, however confrontation does not need to be negative.
Initially, I would start the school year by setting and discussing the high expectations I have for students. Students will learn best in an environment that is structured.
Repeat/reinforce your expectations continuously for the first few weeks of the school year as students become accustomed to their new classroom.
Don’t let up! Be stern with your rules but do not appear “bossy” or like a dictator. This will not allow you to create positive relationships with your students.
Treat them with respect and like adults; there is no need to baby them.

A way you can manage your classroom is by possibly having a reward system or a praising system (not sure what grade level you are wanting to teach) and show them that there will be and are consequences when you misbehave. Also i am not big on confrontation, but if the same student is the one you are constantly needing to have a talk with, then get that one on one talk and make a connection to the student(s) to see if you can solve this issue.
