First impressions last

So it's the start of the new school year! My computer room is built, the kids are back and we've started teaching. 

When I started year 10 I remember my English teacher, Mrs H-B (who was an amazing teacher), saying "first impressions last". She meant it regarding us as pupils, but what if we apply it to us as teachers?

Working in a PRU the first lesson you spend with a class can often dictate how pupils approach us as teachers and how pupils approach a subject. Now is the time to make a great impression on our pupils!
