Dear Uncle Dixer: I am a 6th grade teacher and would like to have a positive classroom. How can you help?  

Answer: You can break down the barrier for communication by removing the desks between you and your students, especially during times of discussions and exchanging of ideas. Sit them in a semi-circle facing you. Show them you care and see them as equals.

A good teacher is also a good student at the same time.
