I passed my first term observation but failed one today. School is fantastic, mentor very supportive and I know exactly why my observation was unsatisfactory and agree completely. I fully intend to turn this around but am worried that this will always be a blot on my record. Do people get unsatisfactory on an observation and go on to be good teachers?? Obviously I am feeling rather emotional and fragile at present but am really worried that I will never be able to shake off the stigma of being a failure. Thank you.
