And I love my job.
I look forward to almost all of my classes, even the difficult ones which ends in at least 1 pupil being sent out.
My form, although notoriously known as the ‘troubled’ group, are hilarious and I generally feel like a mother to them.
I can hand on heart tell any of you trainees that your NQT year is so much better than your placement.
Sure, you have more paper work and commitments but having your own classroom and kids and building that relationship makes it so worth it.
Keep going guys, 1 more week till half term, you can do it!
what really scares me is that i’m average i’m not really good at anything or really beautiful i’m going to live an average life with an average job an average income and die an average death with an average funeral and nobody is going to remember me
Van Gogh thought that too
That is really, really inspiring, actually.
GET READY KIDS
I can’t wait to look back at this text post and remember how nervous and excited I felt.
I can only hope that in a few years time, I’ll still feel nervous and excited at the beginning of every term and I hope I’ve made a real difference to at least one child, just one would be enough to say I’ve done a good job.
And that’s a lesson for everyone, kids.
Don’t take nudes on electronic devices or upload them onto, what is essentially, an ‘internet hard drive’- if you do not want to risk anyone seeing them.
Alternatively, only take nudes on a Polaroid camera.
Before I’m stood in my own classroom trying to teach children to be decent human beings… Shitting myself.
And I’ll be teaching my first ever class as a qualified English teacher.
I am absolutely shitting myself.
Yes, I did. And both times it was unbearably hot.
