What is your advice about? Making Friends (& Alienating People)

1: Don’t befriend everyone on Facebook (other social media sites are available) before you’ve even started working at a school. Enough said.

2: Be you. You will attract people who like you the way you are. Share your interests – turns out other people are into the same geeky stuff as you are.

3: Be friendly (duh). But not insufferably – read other people’s feelings and emotions and take it easy (Rome wasn’t built in a day).

4: Be sincere about your job. Generally teachers like teachers who care about teaching – it’s a good look.

5: Don’t be the staff room whinge. No one really likes that guy – they’re not listening or silently agreeing, they’re just plotting their escape.
