Hi there! I am new here and was just wanting to say hi! I am currently looking to get into Primary Teaching but am having problems at the moment getting the inital classroom experience. As the town in which I live is small but vastly over populated I was wondering if any advice could be given? One of my careers advisors (I have two!) suggested that I come straight to the source and ask teachers themselves for advice! Who'd have thought it?! Also as everyone is diverse and I am recently learning that there are no set ways to do things I was wondering how each of your stories started to become the teachers that you are now and also if anyone is in the same position as me trying to get blood out of a stone that, due to government cuts and over saturation for every unpaid job/placement going, would probably turn out to be an easier thing to do! Thanks terribly and hello, once more!
