ADHD - 10 Tips for Classroom Management
ADHD - 10 Tips for Classroom Management
We are half way through the ADHD Awareness month and this useful entry belongs to Emma, our long-term supply teacher.  When I first started teaching over twenty years ago, ADHD was rarely diagnosed and when it was, it was then treated with suspicion and medication by people that barely knew what it meant.

What makes a good teacher?
What makes a good teacher?
This is an amazing blog from Emma, who decided to share her teaching story prior to the World Teachers' Day. As a young NQT, I came home from a busy, noisy day at school, tired and with a brain buzzing with thoughts about the children and their parents, the demands of the senior management team, and exactly what my parallel teacher was doing that was so different from what I was doing.
