I used to do cover supply for an agency, but I did not go back after the summer holidays because I found a full time call centre job. Now I am trying to get another job already because I am very dissatisfied. There are no advancement opportunities, I am stuck on minimum wage, working unsociable hours spending all day getting yelled at by total strangers. I have had one informal interview for a cover job in a secondary, and another one in the secondary I went to as a child. Yesterday I had an interview in which I had to teach an English class while being observed by two teachers. For the most part, it went well, altough I was very nervous at the start. A boy sat at the front was being disruptive and before I decided to move him to another table, the teacher observing did this for me. Overall, the feedback was quite good, however I was not quite what they were looking for and I need to make some small improvements to my teaching first. The feedback was helpful, given that I had never been observed before, not being a QT and having only ever done supply. The teacher did encourage me to apply again, as he saw a lot of potential. I enjoyed being in a school for the first time since July, and it made me realize how much I enjoyed covering lessons in the first place. I had a sudden epiphany and decided, that at some point, I should consider leaving my job to do supply. But this is risky, because there is no guarantee I would get steady work. But I really do dislike the job I am doing. It is making me snappy, anxious and depressed. My partner thinks that in the way I am behaving, it looks like I've lost the will to live. Would going back to supply be such a good idea, since I hate my job so much?
