I would like a few opinions on whether I am being too sensitive about this or not as I do have a tendency to compare myself to others and be quite sensitive. Anyway, I went into a school today which I have been in quite a few times and thought I had a good relationship with. I was pre-booked and the school requested me by name according to the agency. I get on well with all the staff and have been pre-booked a few times when returning my visitors badge to the office at the end of the day. However, I discovered that they have another supply there who they have offered work to very wednesday morning to cover Maths booster. I don't know how long this is for but when I asked her about it she said was asked to do it before xmas (not sure who by) and that she had been there quite a few times before and said yes when I asked if she was asked my name to do it. However, the TA said she had only started there in Sept and hadn't been in much. I just wonder why they offered it to her over me and feel like maybe I am second choice at that school now, rather than first. I did have a bit of a disasterous lesson in terms of timing and what the kids got done in front of two TA's so think maybe they recommended her instead. I thought about asking the head but maybe that's a bit funny, maybe she was just there at the right time and did one half day covering the Maths boosters and then they asked her to do the rest. I am worried now that if anything longer term comes up she'll get it over me. I do wonder how it all works sometime, as I used to go to some schools regularly who I know think I am good and were asking for me by name and now I haven't been back for ages. Just when Ithink I am making progress something happens. I never seem to have the 'luck!' Or maybe I am just being paranoid?
