Relief Teaching is so different to regular classroom teaching.
The students will respond to you differently and, if it is your first
time with the class, they will not know your expectations or your style
of teaching. You are different to their teacher and they know you
won’t be with them for very long. How they respond to you will, to a
large extent, be determined by how you respond to them.

? are going to make a difference,
? are going to value-add to their day,
? care about their performance and
? you plan to do something about it.

them. Students are no different. Show them in the first 10 minutes that you care.
