13 Voices from the Classroom “Classroom Management. Oh god, help! Is it my voice? Is it my language?....Am I boring? Do I need a whistle? A bell? A door bell? A cooler hand signal? An accent? A funny hat? A stun-gun? Carpeted floors/walls/ceiling?.....What will get their attention, and sustain it?” Induction Ongoing PD

14 Voices from the Classroom “One issue that I wish was covered more in depth at my faculty of education is assessment and evaluation. It wasn't until I really had to put number marks into categories and crunch the numbers that I felt very uncertain of how to do it properly.” Induction Ongoing PD

15 Voices from the Classroom “How to teach to so many different learning levels...or how to assess the different learning levels and how to report on the very low students. I just did my first report cards and I felt very lost. I've gone through a difficult process of throwing away the book and starting to try and teach to the ‘real’ needs of my students.” Induction Ongoing PD
