I have been a specialist teacher working for the LA for a couple of years. Prior to that I was a class teacher and have taught KS1 & 2. I enjoy my job, but feel I have got out of it what I wanted which was to develop a greater knowledge of SEN. I have decided I would like to return to the classroom. Now the dilemma. Do you think I would have difficulty getting a job back in a school as I have been out of the classroom for 2 years? I am aware I am on the UPS and wonder whether schools may think I'm too expensive. I'm thinking a maternity leave may be a good route back into school. I may hand my notice in by the deadline in May which would free me up to take up a maternity leave job in September. But what if I do this and I have no job? I really don't know what to do. Help!
