What is your advice about? Managing Students

  1. Know the expectations at your site & work with these. Consistency across the school makes student management easier for everyone (including the students).
  2. Everything you have heard about building relationships with students is true. This takes time but is an excellent investment of your effort.
  3. Relationships must be focused on student wellbeing & achievement, & should be genuine & professional. A mature approach from you sets the standard.
  4. Be fair, do not discriminate, give in to preconceived knowledge of students or make snap decisions. Think through management issues carefully & ask for advice if needed.
  5. Be confident and ensure students are aware of your standards by modelling these yourself. Your respectful handling of them will pay dividends.
