    Hi all, I'm new to this newsgroup but thought I'd start browsing coz I
    am returning to teaching after a 2 1/4 year break. After enjoying a
    lovely christmas I will start teaching reception in January. I am
    looking forward to it but I am after some good tips to get me sailing
    through it all!! Anyone got some good ideas for sailing through baseline
    without the children getting bored?? All ideas will help, cheers.

    A) Always regard it as your responsibility to keep the kids
    interested and absorbed

    B) Keep them fully stretched - especially the bright ones.

    C) Remember that every child has special educational needs

    D) Ignore the moaners and whingers. If you feel totally kna**ered at
    the end of the day, it's usually a sign you've done a damn good job
    (learnt this donkey's years ago - and it's still true today!)

    E) If you believe teaching is a profession, be professional. That
    means - go that extra mile, find ways to say "yes" instead of
    reasons to say "no"; always try to do an even better job than you
    did yesterday; don't expect any (or much) thanks; if people
    (kids, parents, colleagues - even Ofsted) make suggestions or
    criticise, be grateful for the feedback and (try to) learn from
    it - don't reject it out of hand. (M+S never listened to their
    customers or paymasters, and they, their shareholders _and_
    customers paid the price)

    F) Remember that, apart from the pay, you're just like an airline
    pilot or a doctor - there's no second chance for the customers!

    In short, keep doing what you hope your own kids' teachers are doing.

    And the very best of luck!!
