N. Lowe – Trainee teacher of Spanish

My success story concerns the relationship that I managed to build with a student on my home placement.  At the start of the year he was extremely disruptive and wasn’t receptive to behaviour management techniques employed by a colleague.  I used this opportunity when I was in my observation period to begin to build a positive relationship with him outside the classroom.  This proved very helpful in that when I took over responsibility for the class the relationship that I had built with him allowed for a much calmer learning environment for both himself and others.
