In my career I’ve worked all over the world with children from a diverse range of backgrounds. It wasn’t until I had been teaching 5 years, I was teaching a year 5 class who were so terrible that each and every day was a struggle.

Until I realised that the reason they’d ended up like this was because teachers had mismanaged them previously. With each one quitting after the other.

I decided to make some new class rules, not for the children, but for me. I held myself accountable to the children and the power was suddenly with them.

Here’s what I pledged;

1. I will not judge you based on the past. Let’s scrap history.

2. I will never send you to the principal’s office. You’re my class, your problems are my problems.

3. I’m here if you want to talk.

4. I will not allow you to badmouth or discriminate other students.

5. Grades mean nothing to me, your growth is what I care about. How far have you come?

6. I will never raise my voice or get angry at you. But I might get upset or let down.

7. I will try my best to be here each and every day.

8. I will always tell you to keep going and never give up.

9. I will prepare well, so your lessons are fun.

10. I will never humiliate you in front of your friends.

11. I will not have favourites.

❤️
