    There are already far too many teacher blogs - most of them are very dull.

    Find something else to occupy your time with.

    Blogs are not worth the paper they are not written on.

    It's toe curlingly awful - laughably bad - I'm sorry - but it is.

    If you want to read a proper teaching blog try "the secret teacher" one if it's still running.

    I'm glad you got some toe curls and some laughs out of it.

    I'll keep working to improve my writing after your helpful and incisive feedback.

    I'm a reader of "the secret teacher", assuming you mean the Guardian one, and I've submitted to them too :)

    In any case, new post is up today, any followers of this thread: https://christiansupplyteacher.word...ork-came-in-yesterday-its-not-what-you-think/

    I think you'll like this one. Or maybe you'll hate it ;)

    I've had a look.

    You are very indiscreet -complaining about schools you've taught in, and giving students a website address that you've set up. And you seem to think schools that you go into are a place to push your business. Oh, and giving details about the private lives of staff. That raised my eyebrows. You say they shouldn't care what a supply teacher thinks - which is a way of dismissing what you've done. They do care. The school cares. Didn't they?

    I really wouldn't go into schools to spread the word. I would write exactly the same thing if you were a Muslim, a Sikh, a Hindu, a Jew or an Atheist who feels the need to tell everyone that God does not exist. Or a Socialist, Communist, Fascist, militant vegan or Eco-campaigner. Your private views - and faith is private - is nothing to do with your job, or the students you work with -unless you land a gig in a faith school, a Christian one. Carry on behaving the way you are, and you might find those same agencies that want you because permanent teaching is "brutal" will get rid of you very quickly. You've already had one complaint because you were indiscreet on your blog. If you get more, word will get around...and that will be it.

    I'd ditch it if I were you - not withstanding the fact that it's rubbish - it will get you into a lot of trouble.

    Let's be clear. I am not doing anything illegal. I would never do anything illegal. Faith has everything to do with my work and faith is a public, as well as private, matter. I would never directly "teach" children that my views are right, only present a variety of views as part of a respectful, open, thoughtful dialogue. Which all teachers do. It's a good thing my blog is (now) anonymous, does not violate any aspect of GDPR, and is untraceable to me and so to any of the schools that I work in.

    Blogs for the bog, I'm headed for a life in the bog cutting turf, spreading Peat n turf, or fym.... Eyes and ears open for the tales of fgm, the prevent strategy all sorts.
    I've got a load of stories. Angles to grind fork handles been burnt at both ends right out. I'm gonna make my stories pay. I'm gonna get my pension. I stand alone. I've had the whinge and the whine, the glass of wine and some at the end of the day. I'll get it all published, no names mentioned works if fiction, names changed to protect the guilty. All that stuff. Once I've got the pay cheques coming in, I'll share how, information has a price and silence must be bought. I'm one very angry ex teacher here. I've bee. Set up, bullied beyond belief, passed over, walked over, kicked in the shins, spied on, had carrots dangled in front of me. It's coming. Big pay day a pat in the head, a pat on the back, cow pats and some add some more. and the release. The handing in of the teacher number. It's coming. I'll work it thru, and stand alone, a few good souls have helped in my ha. Ha career but most have been self setvibg spies. You know what I carry with me, as I walk thru my city, I get stopped and called fairly often, big beams on their faces, young adults, it's you miss, hello miss, I loved your lessons, you were great, and that I know is true, it's not measured on paper or spread sheets, the smiles and memories of the youth of the city. Its you miss, I remember you, and many jc these are those I only done a big if short term work it's nive tk be remembered. Remembered fondly and not have to live on the sticks, avoiding the students on a high castle, because you're nothing but an office dweller. Setting up shop.

    Holy moly, jesus christ. You're fookin blessed bwoy. Yer fookin blessed. Too much information and none of it interesting. It's like the kind of stuff idve written in y 6 this is. So at least it's accessible.
    But yer financial situation grand. Yeah, I'm with you on the lack if stretch and the pointless "surrogate activity" nature if a lot if the work for the permanent teacher. Wow. It makes me feel very good that I've struggled so many years against all this out of damned necessity, as a bag eyes single mother more or less having to carry on to feed clothe and roof my self and my son. Jesus wept. These are the people I'm up. Against. You've a lot to learn in the supply treadmill, wheel whatever. Clarifies and justifies more my getting away from it all. All the education, brand new life as I was meant to live it, but I'm gonna get my stories out there in exchange for something. My soul been bled dry nearly by the state of state education. It really has.

    Thanks freshfriesan...I think? Looking forward to seeing your book in print one day. I'm sorry to hear that you've had some very bad experiences as a teacher.
