Friend of mine who taught in a neighbourhood secondary school with disciplinary issues still got a massive culture shock in primary school because of the much much much more frequent need to raise voice, yell, bang table/whiteboard, bring a bell into class just to keep students paying attention for more than 5 minutes at a stretch. I mean yeah we have to deliver engaging lessons and all but sometimes it simply takes more than 5 minutes to explain a complicated concept and they just have to sit down and listen in order to learn.

And yeah this friend is an ST, nowhere near a novice.
