    Hi all,

    Just thought I'd say hey as I'm a new member on here. I'm a 23 year old teaching assistant from Horsforth in Leeds. Thought it'd be a good idea to get on here and speak to a few other people involved in teaching.

    Helena :)

    Hello @Hels_SX
    Have you found the teaching assisstants forum yet? You might find it interesting.
    I hope you have also looked at the Forum Guide and Forum House Rules links given on the other thread you posted on ( am on iPad atm so not so easy to post links here.)

    You might also want to change your avatar if it is a picture of yourself ( and even user name as you have used your real name here) in order to maintain anonymity. Most posters post anonymously in order to ensure they do not identify their school etc.

    From Forum Rules
    "Anonymity: Users will not identify (nor describe in a way which could feasibly lead to identification) schools, students or fellow members of the community."

    You can change your profile picture yourself but to change your user name you need to email help@tes.com explaining the issue and giving a new user name.
    Hope you enjoy your time on tes.
    Edit. You can also ask for any posts to be deleted, if you think they have been too revealing. The easiest way is to report your own post by using the report button at the bottom of the relevant post.
