What if I told you that creating a student-run classroom that was a calm, positive place to learn isn’t just possible… it can be done WITHOUT frustration, overwhelm, and taking MORE time away from your teaching?
The Classroom Management Academy is a roadmap of proven systems and strategies to help teachers create calm, student-led classrooms that allow you to spend more time teaching and less time trying to get your class under control.
You want a classroom that’s inviting, positive, and calm! The only problem is? Your classroom management strategy isn’t working.
HEY teacher friend! Thank you so much for being here.
I know that you’re committed to creating a positive and calm environment inside your classroom so all of your students can have the BEST learning experience possible!
But if you’re like most teachers I talk to, chances are your commitment isn’t where the hang up is — it’s the fact that you feel like you’ve tried EVERYTHING, and nothing works?!
Do you ever feel like no matter what you do for classroom management, you still…
- Seem to have constant interruptions?
- Spend more time getting your class on task than teaching?
- Feel like your class (or a particular group of students) runs the
I can’t tell you how many teachers I’ve talked to who tell me that they’re frustrated, burned out, and overwhelmed by classroom management. They feel like they’ve tried every strategy, every game, every tool… and nothing works.
They feel like a bad teacher, because they just can’t create the classroom environment they want so badly.
I hear ya. And I’m here to help.
In case we haven’t met before… Hi!
I’m Ashley Marquez from Teach Create Motivate. I’m obsessed with fostering student choice and independence in the classroom, and am known for my classroom management techniques, resources, and strategies.
I’ve helped countless teachers who feel frustrated and burnt out with classroom management implement strategies and techniques that actually WORK!
By learning where most classroom management strategies go wrong.
Here’s the thing:
Effective classroom management is not about putting out fires. It’s not about “managing” bad behavior. And it’s not even about “controlling” your class.
Effective classroom management is about building healthy relationships between you and your students, and between the entire class. It’s about having a self-run classroom with independent learners.
It’s about allowing your students to have a voice and ownership in the classroom.
Now at this point, you might be thinking, “Ashley… my students CAN’T run the classroom! They won’t even line up on time!”
Stay with me!
With the right strategies and activities, you can get your students on board and start maximizing your teaching time.
And I’d love to show you how to do it.
“Classroom management can be an extremely intimidating topic for some teachers, but it is SO important to be able to create a safe and productive space for students to learn. If you are a teacher who is looking to improve your practices in this area, Ashley’s course ‘Classroom Management Academy’ is for you! You will learn how to keep your classroom engaged all day long which leads to being able to effectively use your time. I have been teaching for eight years and found the course to be so helpful! Her knowledge and resources have been loved by my students and this course just has it all! I highly recommend this course to any and every teacher out there looking for new ways to efficiently and positively run their classrooms.”
– ANNE, 5TH GRADE TEACHER
Imagine what it would be like to have a class that’s totally self-run!
It’s possible. How do I know?
Because every classroom I’ve ever been has consistently been run by my students, and the teachers I’ve helped experience the exact same thing!
When we put the ownership on our students and allow them to have a say in the classroom we create, they’re bought in. They’re more likely to actually do what you request, because they have leadership in it!
Could you imagine a classroom where…
- Your students keep themselves on task and hold each other accountable.
- Your class transitions quickly and quietly without you having to ask five times!
- You don’t spend your time picking up pencils, turning on lights, and keeping everything in order… because your students do it themselves!
- Your students manage their OWN time, so YOU can manage yours!
It sounds amazing, right?!

Have a question about Classroom Management Academy? Here’s what other teachers wanted to know before joining!
I’ve tried everything! How is this different?
Most classroom management strategies are focused on managing bad behavior. But that’s not what classroom management is really all about!
When you join Classroom Management Academy, you’ll learn how to create a positive and consistent classroom management plan that’s student-led and that gives you the confidence to carry it through the entire year.
How much time will this take?
Classroom Management Academy is a completely self-paced course, which means you are in full control of how much time it takes you!
I’ve broken the videos down into short, easy-to-follow chunks so it’s completely anti-overwhelm. And I’ve made sure that this releases this summer, so you can get through the program before school starts up again in the fall!
I feel like as a teacher, I shouldn’t give up control of my classroom. Should I?
I feel you. But here’s the thing — you’re not really giving up control of your classroom. You’re empowering your students to get involved and become self-sufficient leaders. Of course you’re still there to guide them, help them grow, and keep them on task. The difference is, with an effective classroom management plan, your kids will want to be the ones to keep the classroom calm, positive, and fun.
Is this only for difficult groups / classes?
Nope — effective classroom management is necessary for any class! Whether you have a classroom full of angels or one that’s more challenging (it happens!), creating a classroom management strategy that’s student-led and creates a calm and positive atmosphere is a must.
Is this just for first year or new teachers?
Not. at. All! Effective classroom management can be hard for most teachers no matter how long they have been in the classroom! This program will teach you new things and help you revamp the systems you may or may not already have in place.
Do you offer refunds?
Absolutely! I always want to be sure you’re getting the resources and strategies that are right for you, which is why I include a 14-day, money-back policy.
Are you ready to create an amazing classroom for your students?
I’m so excited for what’s ahead!
I know that so many teachers feel burnt out, confused, and frustrated by classroom management. It feels like no matter what you try, nothing works, and it has you wondering if maybe you’re the problem.
I’m here to tell you that you’re not!
You’re a great teacher — you just need a better classroom management plan. And I’m here to help you with it!
I know that YOU know that when your classroom is a calm, safe, and positive space, all of your students can learn better, interactive with each other better, and take part in building an amazing community inside the classroom.
So let’s make sure you have a plan to create that in YOUR classroom consistently! I am so excited to help you on this journey, teacher!
