i have read a lot of the posts about going back and i am amazed!! it's JUST a job. maybe i'm really lucky about the school i am working in, but i think it's a lot to do with my outlook. i had a VERY difficult year last year due to staff issues, challenging behaviour (staff and parents) and the dreaded 'O' word!! HOWEVER, i saw all of it a positive thing. i feel if i can turn things round into a positive, then things seem managable. however bad the porblems were last year, i took something good out of it. i'm also sure that if i hate ANY job as much as some people - i'd get out and do something else!
