Just a quick question.... Do any other NQTs out there feel unloved, unwanted, ... etc? My year partner gets ALL the praise for everything WE do, and times when I do it, SHE gets the praise still!!! My TA, her TA, other teachers / TAs around the school notice this. It gets me down at times, but I've learnt to not let it get to me. I know that I shouldn't expect a thank you at the end of everyday from the head/senior mangagement. But, you know, a little something to keep me motivated wouldn't hurt. I work in a challenging school, have had to move cities in order to put 100% into my job... I know that she's leaving at the end of this academic year, so I'm wondering if things will change... (so are the rest of the staff)... but part of me wants to leave too.... I mean, the Head has NEVER spoke to me, he sends messages to me through her! She can be really patronising, and knows just how to belittle other staff!
