I never, ever, thought I’d be that teacher—the
one you hear screaming at the kids in their class
from half a mile away—until I became one.
I’m not a shouter. At least I wasn’t a shouter
until, after over 20 years teaching in high
schools, I began working as a specialist art
teacher in a primary school.
How did I move from good behavioural
management strategies and a working pedagogy
in the high school art room to bored, noncompliant
behaviour in the primary school? How
did I find my way back from hating art classes as
much as the kids did to an environment where
we all are engaged, look forward to and love
what we do?
