On my twitter feed I have a search for 'supply teacher' and this image is tweeted almost hourly, if not more during school hours, by secondary students when they find out they have a supply teacher...
Will a change of name to 'visiting teacher' or the like change this attitude?
Is this really how supply teachers are perceived by the children? Or is there a lot of bravado here?
From whom do they learn this attitude, and at what age?
What can be done about it?!
