2017 Early Career Teachers' Network: Professional development and support sessions

Mailie is an English and Science teacher who has been teaching since 2010 at high schools in Melbourne and Canberra across years 7 – 12. She is a leading teacher and teaching and learning coach at Hume Central Secondary College in Broadmeadows. In her first weeks as a teacher she had a chair thrown across the classroom in one class and a student kicked in the head in another – she has since developed a range of practical, effective strategies to deal with challenging behaviour in the classroom and now the chairs (and feet) stay on the ground!
