    Hello! I'm a PGCE student and have come down with something nasty every time I start a new placement. I had a chest infection which didn't shift for ages when I started my first plavement. Then I got laringytis when I started my second and now I have another cold!!
    I am quite a healthy person, I eat relatively well and excerice, it just seems that I'm catching a lot of bugs which I never use to before I started teaching. Any advise on how to fend off the nasty infections would be appreicated.
    BTW I had a quick search and couldn't see a similar site, so if there is one, or I've posted on the wrong place please let me know.
    Thanks [​IMG]

    Protecting your voice is very important. Do not shout at all. Learn to raise your voice in a controlled way and develop a series of strategies for getting the kids to be quiet without using your voice.
