Failure is always possible, if you work hard enough to achieve it!
I've talked to a lot of disillusioned teachers. They want to quit but they can't, for various reasons. In this article, I'm going to run through some of those and give some handy hints to those who really can't face the classroom any more, but are stopped by these key things:

At the start of the year, I truly hated doing my break duty. I was stuck in the west stairwell, which the hooligan element thought of as their picnic spot.

Requests for CCTV to find out who was throwing chairs around never even got an answer. In the end, I decided to use a behaviour management system perfected by the former provost of Eton.
