This book is about you: you in your new role, you as a complex person with strengths and needs - just like your students. It is about the way you think of yourself as well as the children and young people you teach and how you build the relationships you need to have. You have exactly the same issues as your pupils in many ways - pressure to `perform', issues of control, how to get the maximum amount of satisfaction out of your days, and how to make experiences meaningful and worthwhile. This book has been written so that as a new teacher, you might have the best possible chance of being motivated to stay in education, fully involved and passionate about the difference you can make for your pupils and their future. Here you will find suggestions about ways of being in school that enable you to enjoy the interaction both with the students you teach and also with the colleagues who support you. These include: * getting and maintaining credibility in your new role * putting respect into operation * developing student self-awareness and self-control * being aware of and promoting a positive emotional climate in your classroom * dealing with conflict and confrontation in ways which do not undermine your sense of self and purpose * seeing difficulties as part of the challenge, not the reason to fear coming through the school gates. Sue Roffey is an educational psychologist, consultant, writer and academic specialising in social, emotional and behavioural issues. She is currently Adjunct Research Fellow at the University of Western Sydney, Australia, and Honorary Lecturer at University College, London.

An introductory compendium of useful information and advice. The author has paid particular attention to practice and policy in the UK and Australia. -- The Teacher Trainer Journal 'In addition to the practical strategies provided and words of wisdom offered by the author, threaded throughout this excellent book there are opportunities for the new teacher to explore personal values, attributes, qualities and behaviour. The interactive exercises that encourage this reflection include case studies and reflection points and these make a wonderful addition to this second series'- Colleen Cummings, Learning and Teaching Update 'There is far more to this book than the typical outpourings on behavioural management as the author, an educational psychologist, offers so much more. She offers advice about what it means to be a teacher and all the skills required to do this amongst fellow teaching professionals and within the school community, which includes pupils and parents. Perceptive, focused and easy to read - new teachers will rapidly want to turn the pages before the academic year starts and refer to it again and again!' - Youth in Mind Praise for the first edition: 'Reading the book, it was obvious that the author was writing from a perspective of having been there. I can certainly recommend this book. New and beginning teachers in both primary and secondary settings will find it a helpful and supportive resource' - Behaviour UK
