More than I thort it would

Yes it has but right now I've got to much on my mind to concentrate

Yes I do think that it has help me back at regular school in my behaviour. I donít yell at the teachers any more and I can control my temper alot better at school.

In what ways is your behaviour at school different to your behaviour before you were at the Teaching Unit?

My behaviour is different in the way I talk to teachers, my grades have got even better. I am now avoiding punch-ons. I have alot more friends because I donít act like a smarty anymore.

I'm better more often

Ive consentrated on work more I donít swear as much Ive been asking for help more and other stuff

Well I use to fight with my friends alot but now I dont. If people picked on me Iíd go back at them and get upset but I now try to deal with it and tell them how I feel.

I don't no - not really different

I can stand up for myself in a polite way, I can ignore students, I can consentrate a bit better in class and be assertive ect. ect!!!

I have been coping better with teaches and getting along with them much better. I have concentrated much better. I think I have solved conflicts much much better conpeard to befor.

My behaviour is different at school because I do more work now at school.

Well before I came here I didn't care because I didn't know how to do the work but know I do and I wasn't really pleasant to talk to

Im doing more work Im not getting angry so easy and Im talking more polite and if I didnt have a lot on my mind I would be doing everything right Im even trying to quit smoking
