Classroom materials and supplies should be used with discretion. There are many instances in which the regular teacher has planned ahead for their use. All teaching materials, library materials, audio-visual aids, etc., should be properly cared for and left in an orderly fashion.
You should make all reports required concerning attendance, lunch, etc. If you are on a long-term assignment, consultation with the regular teacher should be arranged where practical and possible. The decision regarding a consultation will be made by the school principal.
When the class arrives, introduce yourself, write your name on the board and smile. Your day with the students has begun.
Rapport with students should be established quickly. A pleasant, sincere, but firm approach and adherence to the established routine of the classroom, will help ensure a relationship of mutual respect with the pupils. Students should be under your supervision at all times. The district expects all students to do the work assigned and to observe all the requirements of good conduct. You must accept no other standard. You are responsible, as are regular teachers, for upholding school rules and regulations and for maintaining daily attendance records. If you are in doubt about the methods of keeping this record, information may be secured from the school secretary, the department head, the nearest classroom teacher, or the principal.
