I would welcome advice. I left teaching last July after being unable to secure a part time post. I wanted part time as I have three children and just couldn't manage the hours required to work full time. After a couple of years on temporary posts and having to go through horrendous interviews I gave up and went back to my first career. The problem is, I miss teaching. I was in primary and I miss the kids, I miss the relationship you build with them, I miss having a classroom and I miss the holidays! I don't miss Ofsted, planning or marking. I have been looking at jobs and am tempted to apply. Realistically I will have to apply for full time. My question is, I'm I mad? Would it even be possible to get an interview after a 12 month break? And if I did get an interview how would I explain my absence? Like I said, any thoughts or advice welcome.
