an interesting day

Did you hear the news? I've got a pay rise - haven't quite worked out how much or when I'll get it but I am very excited.

That was the headline.

I have four more days left with my student teacher although today we had another "Aha!" moment. He was teaching and some bullying was taking place and this kid decided to behave like an obnoxious little brat and so I dealt with it! I exited the kid from the classroom and gave him a dressing down - which was heard by most of the corridor, then sent him to the assistant principals office.

When I re-entered the room I told the student teacher what I had done. He hadn't heard a thing!!!!! (I've had a few people commenting on how loud I was etc) The kids behaved a lot more than they have done - but lot of it could have been down to me. What do you think?

I reckon the Student teacher pinched your ear plugs and didn't tell you he was trying them out!

Yes pay rise but looks like you lost some student free days, you should lobby for student teacher free days :)

I think the better behavior was due to you. This student teacher, if he couldn't hear you, or take action on bullying to begin with still has a lot to learn in my book.
