This book has been written as a practical guide for teachers in their first five years in the profession. I would like to thank all the people who make contributions to the virtual staffroom at the Times Educational Supplement website and everyone who comes to my courses, particularly those at the University of London Institute of Education and at the Lewisham, Lambeth, Greenwich, Medway and Jersey Professional Development Centres.
Thanks to all who have helped me, especially Peter Earley from the Institute of Education, Stephen Jones from RoutledgeFalmer, Susan Young from the TES and Fiona Minnis from the Institute's MA in Educational Management.
Most of all, I must thank Paul, Julian, Miranda and Oliver for their encouragement and tolerance of me while I wrote this book.
