Im really aware that every time i look at this thread its full of negative posts, from people struggling with their NQT year. I can remember before September, everyone so excited, coming together to share ideas etc. I just want to reach out to new NQT's about to start their year in September. It's not all bad!!! I've got a lovely supportive mentor, and school. Yes it's hard work, yes there's so much uni doesnt prepare you for, but you have to expect that!!!! Teaching is tiring, but its also absolutely fantastic!!! There are times where i would give anything to swap classes for the day, today being one of those where i'd just had enough, but I would never change my career for anything. Just wanted there to be a positive comment on here for once!!!!
