I am so happy! Had my first day as a supply teacher for a challenging class in a challenging school but I kept my self together managed behaviour fairly well and got through their work set by the teacher - even confident enough to go slightly off topic and let them have some drama time (linked to their PHSCE) topic. I do need to manage transitions a bit better but it could have been worse. I was very disappointed to not get a job secured for September. I finished a term later than my cohort and I struggle with interviews (massive anxiety) and today reminded me why I am doing what I am doing. I love teaching so much, I love working with the children and nothing beats that pupil-teacher interaction. Recently I have been so tempted to just get a secure job in another industry but I need to focus on the bigger picture here. I have a wonderful opportunity. I am going to focus on working on my anxiety, develop my interview practice and hopefully I will secure a full time position to do my NQT.
