And am incredibly nervous! Any beat-the-nerves tips?
Don't panic. I was really worried when I did my first secondary placement, expected the worst especially behaviour but had a better time than my primary placement. Don't try to be best friends with the pupils and be yourself they'll see through an act but do be approachable and take an interest in their work. Get to know the policies esp. rewards and sanctions and use them. Relax, you should have a few days or even a week to get to know your classes and the topics to teach so take the time to learn the routines. Hope you have a great time!
