I am a teacher as well, and I don't like rewards/punishments. I like natural consequences and I like teaching children to be independent and responsible. I love the Positive Discipline books. I hate "behavior cards" and other things that are often used in elementary classrooms. I have tried it both ways in my classes, and while rewards can work immediately, it does not work well for the long term and instills some bad behaviors- like always thinking you should get something for doing something.
Sometimes, a small reward might be a good idea, but in general I don't like it.
