Recipe for the Perfect Supply Teacher by Stephanie Boulton

One part being ready at all times

One part always being prepared

One part flexibility

One part adaptability

One part willing to go the extra mile

One part confidence

One (huge) part sense of humour

Mix together with a huge dose of their love of teaching children and an equally large measure of wanting to make a difference!

Remember: It is essential that you tend to your Supply Teacher regularly!

You must remember to talk to them often, nurture them, support them and help and advise them as necessary. It is equally important to your Supply Teacher that they know you are always there for them, no matter what.

If you start with the above ingredients and tend as above, you should create the perfect Supply Teacher and enjoy watching them grow under your care! This way they will be with you forever!
