Never-ending Journey

Sometimes I succumb to the illusion that I will be able to train my students so that they will be self-disciplined, and I won't have to worry about discipline anymore.

This will never happen.

Classroom management is a never-ending journey. The teacher must always be vigilant. If the teacher relaxes his discipline, then the students will misbehave. That's human nature. Classroom management requires a constant expenditure of energy.

Similarly, teaching is a never-ending journey. There is never a destination, where I can state, "Now I am done."
