One more term as an NQT!
It’s been so long since I last blogged, I cant even remember what new has happened. Hmmm…
Behaviour went a bit haywire, Nursery Nurse left, more responsibility, more control, behaviour got better, tired, stressed, emotional, tense observation/pupil progress/ IEP week…. and the Easter holidays eventually arrived! Phew!
its hard to describe that feeling when you are so stressed, tired and completely drained that you need a break or else you feel like you’ll just fall down, your body just giving up under the workload. Teachers and childcare professionals are often thrown insulting comments such as, “Ah it’s an easy job, it’s just playing!” or “You get so many holidays” but I just think there is a very good reason why the people saying these things are not in the jobs they are slating. It’s easy to say these things, but do you really think they believe what they’re saying? Of course not! Otherwise they would be in these “Fantastically easy jobs with great holidays”! Next time someone says something along those lines don’t be insulted, you’re in a job that you had to work bloody hard for. You make all the difference in the world to 30 children, their families and shape their future. Can the people who belittle working in education say they make such a huge impact? Nah, I didn’t think so. Boom!
