Develop your list of beliefs about learning, students, and discipline. Be sure to consider the many beliefs presented in this book and whether you agree or disagree. Review your list and note any that conflict with each other. See if you can reconcile any of these conflicts. After your first year with stopping discipline and just teaching, go back and look at the list of beliefs you wrote. See if any have changed or any conflicting beliefs have been reconciled.

If you find yourself having beliefs that are mostly consistent with the beliefs presented in this book, keep your list where you will see it from time to time. Read it over, and use it to motivate and help guide you in your efforts to help your students.
