God, I am so bloody grumpy. Always am first day of the holidays. Think all the stress and adrenaline from term time has nowhere to manifest itself. I wake up and thinkg, "controlled assessments....new C/D borderline 11V group who hate English but have got a C in maths and therefore have been given 8 lessons of English a week..... severely SEN y7 group.....ALevel ids that don't want to think for themselves....top set y10 that want to get A* but don't want to even READ a novel...then I realise I don't have to think about any of that for two weeks. Sigh. So instead I worry about painting the house, going to the gym, cleaning blah blah blah. I am 28 and am well aware that teaching has turned me in to a grumpy old woman - way ahead of my time!
