What is one small delight in the day that you always look forward to?
I came to Special Education just this year and my brief, from the Principal, was to help steer the culture of the school, away from Behaviour Management, and more towards teaching and learning. As I have always taught in mainstream schools, tackling the new school year with an academic focus came second nature to me.
Without doubt, one of the small delights in the day, which I always look forward to, is seeing the children working away with a real sense of choice and purpose, at the Daily 5 – something I introduced to the school this year. It begins the day and sets the tone to help them settle into the learning, with engagement and enjoyment.
