Having read a lot of the threads on here, there is a lot about the downsides to the nature of supply teaching. I appreciate that these issues are real and are exacerbated for teachers who are not doing supply through choice. I have chosen to become a supply teacher after many years of 'normal' (lol) teaching. I really enjoy the freedom of supply teaching, choosing to a degree how much a work and being able to switch off when I arrive home for family time. When I was a full time teacher, the planning, meetings, reviews, assessments took over so much of my time. Whilst I appreciate supply teaching is not for everybody. My question is aimed at those who are doing supply teaching through choice. Are there any supply teachers who love what they do. If so, why?
