Classroom management is a tricky thing to learn and I feel that it can only be learned through experience. With that being said there are a few things to establish right away:

1) You're the adult. You're in control even if they aren't.
2) Keep exectations short and very clear.
3) Keep your promises. If you promise to give a consequence do it. Doesn't matter if they are the good kids or the irritating ones.
4) You can be friendly to them, but you are NOT their friends.
5) Allow yourself to make mistakes (important!)
6) Always ask for help; no need to impress anyone at this point.
7) Don't ever bring work home.
8) Communicate with parents.
9) Learn to be flexible at times
