From the Author
Tearing Your Hair Out?
In floods of tears in the staffroom? If you are, I know exactly how you feel, because I've been there too. And that's why I wrote this book. With 5 years of teaching experience, I realised that I had a lot of tips and advice that might help those teachers experiencing difficulties with 'getting the buggers to behave'.
There's no theory in my book. Just lots of ideas about what you might do to help you survive in the classroom. Why not try it and see? And just to whet your appetite further, here's a little of what Tim Brighouse said about my book in his TES review:
"This book is rich and realistic: rich in the array of strategies and examples that work, and realistic in that it is based on vivid examples of how youngsters misbehave."
