Supply teachers do not always receive adequate support and recognition in their temporary but crucial role. This book addresses the issues important to supply teachers and identifies the skills necessary for handling the demands they face. It tackles the challenges of dealing with new classes, managing challenging student behaviour, working with new groups of students and colleagues, making a fresh start with difficult classes and receiving the professional status deserving of the role. Bill Rogers shows how supply teachers can access colleague support and develop the essential skills of behaviour management and classroom discipline. Numerous ideas for schools to effectively support supply teachers and case studies of the author's work with supply teachers in the United Kingdom and Australia are also included. This practical and timely book is essential for supply teachers, newly qualified teachers, and for all those who manage and work with supply teachers. Bill Rogers is a well known education consultant. His work focuses on practical approaches and skills in the areas of behaviour management, discipline, effective teaching, stress management and teacher welfare.
Bill is known as well as for his sensitivity to teachers' needs and concerns.
