Hi all I have taken 2 terms-1 year out of English teaching to return to university to complete my MA (something I always wanted to do) and to develop my experience in pastoral care as I always wanted to be a HOY (am working as a non-teaching HOY). I have only been teaching for a few years and was Key Stage Coordinator for English when I left. I miss teaching everyday and want to make my CV as strong as possible for returning to the classroom. I also want to get my practice up to date. I have run an after-school bookclub, done some EAL tutoring and my MA is subject related. I am a member of NATE and will try and get to the conference if there's still time. What else would you recommend I do? Thanks very much for your time. I know some of you will think I should have never left etc but please, I'm looking for advice and a way forward here!
