It's Never Just About the Behaviour: A holistic approach to classroom behaviour management

When writing this book, I kept coming back to one main goal. To empower you to take the action you can take when you walk into your classroom.
To feel supported, confident and equipped to turn your own space into an island of safety and support for each one of your students.
To know that, when challenging behaviours inevitably pop up, you’ll be able to respond to them effectively and calmly.
Allowing you to do the job that you got into the profession to do, and do it damn well.

To teach.


What do teachers really need to know (and do) to confidently mitigate, address, and resolve the sheer volume and complexity of challenging classroom behaviours they face?  


In It's Never Just About the Behaviour, I answer this very question.

Behaviour isn′t ever just about the behaviour itself and effective behaviour management isn’t about simply responding to a behaviour. It is about thinking through:

✔️The ′why′ behind the behaviour

✔️The ′what′ is going on in the body and the brain, and

✔️The ′how′ you can proactively craft your pedagogy and practice to support the wellbeing, development and educational experience of all students.

In a nutshell, It's Never Just About the Behaviour gives you the knowledge, strategies, and action that you need to adopt a calm, compassionate, and effective approach to classroom management.

Hi fellow teachers, I'm Claire!

I am an experienced Australian Secondary English teacher and senior leader, specialising in supporting students with complex social, emotional and mental health needs. Over my career, I have worked across the United Kingdom and Australia, dedicated to transforming volatile, challenging, and chaotic learning environments into places of safety, support, and learning.

With an unwavering belief that in order to champion all students, you must first champion all teachers, I founded The Unteachables Academy, where I am dedicated to providing teachers with the actionable and relevant support, mentorship, and training, they need and deserve!

This book is a tapestry of the millions of micro moments that have shaped me as a teacher. The approximate 15,600 hours spent teaching in a classroom, the hundreds of students who joined me in that space with all of its trials and triumphs, the colleagues who worked alongside me, the leaders who I have learnt from, whether it be from the positive, or the negative. It is such a privilege to bring this to you and walk along side you in your teaching journey.
