BLOODY website!!! I switched back to IE so it would register my paragrpahs and now it's just lost my reply, as well as being unbearably slow. GRRR! Anyway, thanks once again for all your support - and hello Lurk Much! t's so interrsting to see my problems are all too familar with many of you, yet at the same time indicative of much wider problems. It does comfort me that you seem to think this is a rubbish situation, rather than the expected norm. The moral of this sorry education system seems to be that the loudest, most bull.shittiest seem to excel. I want to reply properly, and DID until I lost it, but I wanted to quickly say that due to your positivity, I'm sure, something good has happened..... I have an interview!! It;s for a nice Primary School in a nice town near me - interview is May 3rd so I have the weekend to make it all perfect. This couldn't have come at a better time as staff structures were announced, and guess who I've been put with next year....!?
