Special Ed Major Asks....

Hello all,
As a special education major I am curious on how educators are able to build a relationship involving respect as well as humor. I must admit I am sometimes sort of a joker. I understand the need for a sustainable relationship between teacher and student and wouldn't want to undermine my own authority in the classroom. How much humor should be allowed in the classroom without causes too much distraction?

There is a important balance to be struck here. I have found that cultural synchronization impacts the kinds of humor that can be used in a classroom.
