Teaching up to five classes of 20-30 students a day. I learned that adopting a calm and consistent approach to classroom management can very quickly 'turn a class around'. The management at this school was top class across the board and they made you feel appreciated. The hardest part of the job was arriving in the department at the beginning of a 'transitional' stage. As ever, working with the friendly and enthusiastic students was the most enjoyable part.
Very friendly and well-balanced students, supportive management and teaching colleagues.
