Hi, I qualified as a teacher in June this year and started teaching in a local FE college in September. I had my first internal lesson observation today and got 'satisfactory'. I feel so disappointed that I got a grade 3, particularly as I achieved 2's and 1's throughout my training last year. I understand that the criteria are probably more strict now that i'm qualified but I just feel like I'm putting so much effort in and have fallen at the first hurdle. The team that I work with are supportive but I feel embarassed and as though I should have done better. Is it normal to feel so insecure? And as a newly qualified teacher can I request support such as a mentor? Thanks.
