Classroom Management

I had the opportunity to sub last Thursday and Friday in a first grade class!  The students were wonderful!  However, I have a dilemma already.  Every time I think I know what classroom management format I want my FIRST classroom to have in the Fall, I see another FABULOUS idea!  When I was in school I do not recall there being so many different ways to "manage" students.  Now, in every class I have been in so far, there is individual, group/table, and whole class management systems!  It seems so overwhelming!  My question, is all three necessary?  Thank you for your advice.

Firsts

I just graduated from college and am ready to have my FIRST job as a teacher!  I am also attempting to start my FIRST blog!  Along with all the other FIRSTS that will happen this year, I expect there will be big gaps in time on this blog, but it will be fun to give it a whirl!  I am inspired by the many other educational blogs in "blog land."  That's what my interning teacher calls blogs.  I hope you will follow me as I grow and learn as a FIRST year teacher.
