Description - Watch out for Jamie Joel by Mike Dumbleton

Watch out for Jamie Joel. She s got a real temper and a mouth like a sewer when she gets going. Jamie imagined the new deputy reading her file, with a photo the size of a Wanted poster and words like disruptive , unco-operative , inappropriate underneath it all that teacher stuff that never said what really happened. I reminded Jamie that student behaviour management was my job, and that part of the issue was now her identity crisis in the corridor. From the way she looked at me, I had the distinct feeling that it wasn t possible to be a deputy principal and a human being at the same time.Against the background of a busy high school, student and teacher are thrown together in ways that test them both. With sympathy, humour and a sharp eye for the truth, Mike Dumbleton writes about the complicated push-and-pull between teenagers, parents and schools.
