Calling all teachers/ education practitioners!
Have completed a uni degree in Primary Teaching but do not now want to go into primary teaching.
Have been for an interview today at a local nursery and its fantastic 'Outstanding' by Ofsted. It's just that its so different to everything I know for a variety of reasons. I have never worked with the EYFS document, nor really children under 5. The methods and learning techniques used are so different to normal teaching practice I need to rapidly adjust my style to fit in.
How can I best adapt myself to suit a role where I must become an all-knowing oasis of calm when most of the practice I've seen is shouty and chaotic! I need to change my instincts so that I am not going to immediately raise my voice etc when thats what I've been taught!
I want this job so badly- how they are is exactly how I WANT to be, I just need to feel confident that I can do it!
Any early years experts?
