1. Create a relationship with the parents
2. Be positive in the classroom
A popular piece of advice given to new teachers is ‘don’t mile before Christmas’, in order to cement your role as the boss in the classroom. The fact is that positivity goes a long way towards a better behaved classroom, so encourage and help your students wherever you can. A few words of praise when they’re getting right will sit so much better than a heavy handed approach when things go wrong.
3. Know your subject
As a primary teacher this sounds like a difficult task, but you need a good understanding of your subject in order to teach it. If you don’t, it can have a serious impact on your students’ learning.
4. Your relationships with your students matter
The environment in your classroom will go a long way towards your success. A teacher that encourages a positive environment will be able to understand their students’ needs better, and therefore help them achieve their best every day.
