Hi, I thought a positive post would be welcome! As I approach the end of my first term, I wanted to say how happy I am to be a teacher and that my choice to leave a professional high paying job to come and teach, is not something I regret! I organised my first school trip yesterday which was a complete success for my A-Level students. They are more motivated now and it was a nice treat for them as we just finished doing all the past papers. I had behavioural problems with the lower school kids that I teach, but as of 2 weeks ago, we (not I) turned a corner, where the ringleading students came to me and apologised for their actions over the term. The class are working very well in their subjects, with most achieving NC levels 5-7. Four weeks ago I was crying, wanting to leave the job. I am glad I didn't.
