Judith Morais's curator insight, March 31, 4:11 AM
With over 30 years of experience, I have had few problems with classroom management. On the last day of school however, I had to take on a year 10 supervision class. I was horrified with the behaviour I had to handle, but more horrified by the fact that I had allowed myself to let my guard down so the problems in the class soon spiralled out of control. Too many years of having a class of my own where I could mould expectations of behaviour and enforce them. These tips for a beginning teacher are a timely reminder to all of us.
