Things that please me

Seriously mate there is no way I could do your job, I'd end up in the jail for battering the kvnts. Being a Polis was far easier I reckon.
Swings and roundabouts. I think a lot comes down to the team around you when you start a job, a decent team will build up the new people to a decent standard whereas a dysfunctional department will drop new people in at the deep end leaving them to sink or swim.

Part of the reason I go out of my way to help the young trainees, if I can beat some cynicism into them early they might stick the job out longer than 24 months.

Edit - a mate who used to be a teacher is now a prison guard, reckons it's much the same but now he's allowed to hit people.

Just to update you as I know you get excited about this sort of thing - miscreant did not appear in my room today as the parent removed them for 'an appointment' after lunch. No shouting match, no disciplinary meetings, a rather dull end to a promising start. I will try and find some other argument to have in November to keep you entertained.

Other troublemaker refused to sit where they were told, behaviour team called, sat in the right seat for 2 minutes before claiming to be ill. I let them go to the office and mummy collected the poor darling which prevented them from ******* up my lesson. All in all a pretty good day, especially for the last day of the half term.

Tell us more about this Behaviour Team? Does it consist of normal teachers with lots of experience or do they specialise in it and are not subject teachers?

Do you have any catchphrases you use with the kids - such as "don't be dumb" or "you're a few electrons short of a full orbit"?
 
I was wondering about that Behaviour Team too . . . It must be something like the, alleged, teams at Guantanamo Bay consisting of lots of bods with large sticks and forceful personalities ? Or perhaps a couple of inoffensive school secretaries, with electric-cattleprods?

Having a bunch of Soldiers who are all now enthused and mad for more after a 2 week TFLTT/LFTT package where they all put in 100% graft and maximum effort. Each man jack made me proud these last couple weeks.

I fucking wish. The Behavioural Intervention Team is whichever member of management who isn't busy inventing yet more pointless bollocks for us to do so when OFSTED arrive so they can say "Look how busy we have been".

Some of them arrive 15 minutes after you put a call in, remove the dickhead and say "We'll discuss this later". Those are the good ones.

The bad ones rock up as the lesson is finishing, have a quick chat and put the oxygen thief back in your lesson to carry on with the rest of their day as usual. At that point it was worthless calling for backup and it should have been dealt with in department.

It's quicker and easier to deal with it in department than involve the official process, especially as the official process takes so fucking long. All of that time you're stuck with a dickhead deliberately breaking rules and encouraging the rest of them to kick off hoping that someone senior might appear at some point.

Never mind, half term, a week off :)

Had a chat, late 60's, with a head teacher. I'd been talking about how we used to get the strap when we misbehaved. I then joked about how in England it would've been the cane. Sharp intake of breath, "No way. We don't use corporal punishment." WTF, I think. "How do you control them then." says I. "There's other ways of doing that." came the reply. That's worked out well, has it not? Unfortunately, this attitude is only any good, when every single pupil agrees with it. Some only understand a sharp shock, strap/cane to get them in line.

And some go no no no please don't punish me and end up with wife's that say things like "Don't punish him he'll only enjoy it"

What by pleases and frustrates me in equal measures is the Fancy a Bit of Ginger thread on here.
I do but 15 years and counting of marriage to a blonde restricts my ability to make the dream come true.

Cotton wool (or a tampon) dipped in a bit of Vaseline goes straight away. Crisps or Doritos keep the burn going until the Molotov cocktail is alight.

As someone who has been assessed as have an impaired imagination, it pleases me that there is an easy compromise. Get your good lady to try going for a ginger blonde look, like the girl I used to see in the bakery.

Surely you need two to rub together?

What exactly is a Fero rod?

There is something satisfying about being able to start a fire and control it, which appeals to the inner Caveman
