Hi everyone, Thanks in advance for any replies. I’m having a crisis of confidence and feeling like I’m doing really badly in my NQT +1 compared to last year but I could very well be overreacting. I had good feedback all last year and my drop ins from colleagues and SLT, when they’ve left feedback, has been good. However I’ve had two observations now that have left me feeling bad and that I’m a rubbish teacher. My HoD observed me with a GCSE class for oral presentations and has now suggested I team teach with her. In the feedback she didn’t feel that I stretched the top set enough so I know this is why she suggested team teaching. I didn’t reveal it but I felt quite offended and now feel that the lesson was terrible and that I can’t teach. Aside from inviting her to another lesson and going above and beyond in it and showing her what I do in every other lesson I’m not sure what to do. It’s a competitive department and prigress wise I feel like I’m starting to be left behind. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
