DO NOT USE PERMANENT MARKERS..
That is what I learned today. Luckily....I did not highlight this to my pupils or there would have been much abuse and slagging. My nails and hands are black from attemping to wipe it off from the board. Thankfully, all I had to write was a line!!!!!!!!
Despite that little accident things are going well, I feel a little more confident taking the classes now as I get to know the pupils. However, I do feel less confident about teaching the actual subject compared to my previous placement - but this is understandable as Bus Ed is my first subject. Now that I am on my computing placement - I am glad.
I have taken on board what my teacher has been saying to me regarding discipline and classroom management - which shows that I am willing to progress and improve.
