When greeted by another supply teacher in a school which is ever more rarefied nowadays . It isnt long before the words 'are you getting enough work?' are uttered. If you haven't met them before in my experience you get this situation where they usually bluff and pretend that everything is fine. Well that’s how it used be now I hardly see anyone. Just wondered. I know this will only be a snapshot of those willing to say so but how much work have you had this term Me: so far (Secondary) 9 days teaching 3 ½ days as cover as a supervisor - pointless really I know! I feel dirty now but it was the start of the year and to say I was desperate would be understatement. Even worse I was a total mug for trying to deliver actual lessons - I had access to lesson plans via the schools network. Looking at the payslips boy do I wish I hadn’t bothered.
