Help! I am a newly qualified TA and started working at a Primary School in September. I have just had my induction where the Head sits in on a session I have with a group of 6 students. I have had really positive feedback, but at the end, was told that I need to lower my volume. I did realise towards the end of the session that I had been talking louder than normal, partly due to nerves and general noise going on around me, as we work in a communal area shared by other classrooms. However, I do naturally have a strong voice and that can come across as being loud, even though to me, I aren't. Can anyone give me any tips on how to be more aware of my vocal level and to keep it down. I've seen quite a few people asking for help to make themselves be heard in the classroom, but for myself, its the opposite!
