“Students are only humans; they have good days and bad days”Wael Alrowaihi
While it’s important- as a teacher- to be firm in establishing your ground rules, it’s equally important to strike the balance between being a good leader and being person. Building positive relationships with your pupils will insure they don’t feel they’re being spoken down to. Mutual respect is vital to a harmonious classroom. “Build positive relationships with the young people you’re working with quickly- learn their names, show interest in them and respond to them dutifully”.
“Understand your pupils- remember they are only human, they have good days and bad days.”
“The more you divert your attention from negative behaviour and praise or encourage those doing the right thing, the more others follow their example to receive the same attention. Focus on the positives to create a positive environment for everyone.”
