I am a teacher of Modern Foreign Languages. I have had leadership posts in Pastoral middle management and in Teaching and Learning and I currently enjoy working with new teachers and PGCE students. Over my years in the classroom I have refined the concept of Positive Teaching, which started as a set of behaviour management techniques, and I now regard it as a philosophical approach which can be applied to all areas of school life, from planning lessons to school leadership. I’ve been talking to many of my colleagues in school and to the PGCE students and NQTs I meet about my approach. They, and the SLT at my school, will attest that I am passionate about spreading the word about Strictly Positive Teaching. Now I am keen to share my ideas with as many as I can of my peers in other schools in the hope that they might find it as useful and rewarding as I do.
