Conflict is a natural component of a teacher’s daily life. Whether with student, a colleague, or a parent, conflict is a much neglected realm of development for nearly all teachers. In observing conflict and problems in the classroom, our position is that the teacher is responsible for the problem or exacerbates the problem much of the time. Teachers routinely pass along their discipline problems along to administrators. Dealing with conflict in an effective and healthy manner is mathematically proportional to the individual’s level of constructive discontent, the ability to remain comfortably uncomfortable. Dealing with Conflict, Anger and Disagreement in the Classroomviews conflict as the doorway into mastery and conflict and always reveals the level of teaching mastery you have acquired.
