"I think the main thing is to focus on your students, and making your class interesting and fun and playing games. (…) Just understand that teenagers are very social, and at the foundation of their life that the teenager is to be social. If you can set up your classroom so that they can be social, like talking to their neighbor and playing games, that is gonna be much more successful. Because they wanna talk to each other and they wanna interact with each other. Their whole life right now is making friends, so if you can do that in your class, the students would be really happy and you’re not gonna have as many problems with behavior." (Bridget, Interview)
