So training days are over, getting to know you day are over, tomorrow the real teaching begins! Already have concerns about two teachers, the classroom management is not quite as it should be! Chaos at home time when the HT just happens to be in the corridor may have been just bad timing, so a quick chat and three possible solutions for a calmer dismissal were given, I left with a happier teacher. It’s been a long time since I was an NQT (well at least 10 years ago!) Trying to remember everything, children’s names would be good, then there’s school procedures, labelling books, behaviour management, and on it goes….so being supportive and “have you thought of doing it like this?”.
I also start my Y2 literacy and language class this week, very excited about that….being SLT is great but nothing beats whole class teaching!!!!!
