However, have no fear – once you have a few tricks up your sleeve, you will be as illusive as a magician…with your students in the palm of your hands. What’s more…teaching children is rewarding and great fun! Having your students walking into your classroom in eager anticipation for your lesson is payment in itself. But how can you transform yourself into this magical teacher? Well….
