I need to let off steam. My team leader is a massive ****puffin. So we've done some IRIS filming of ourselves to share in our team meetings. I did mine 3 weeks ago, before half term. During our team meeting tonight my team leader says, oh Laura can you share your reflection? Ok, thanks for the warning! I started the job in January having completed my NQT last year so I'm not an experienced teacher. I let them all watch the video of me teaching during continuous provision time and afterwards she said nothing positive, nothing. She was like, so how do you think you pushed the children's learning further? What areas of development would you give yourself? How about, well done Laura for sharing in front of us all, thank you for doing that. No? Ok. It made me feel like I was a totally **** teacher. I'm sure that's not what she meant but it's how I felt. And THEN! When our TA's had gone the teacher form the other class (we're 3 form entry) says, oh do we need to do those targets forms for parent's evening next week? Oh yes says my team leader, sorry I forgot to email you about that Laura, you haven't seen those have you? No I have not bloody seen them, I have been here for half a term!!! And now I have a week to get these forms done with 4 targets PER CHILD!!! And then she ***** off to get her nails done.* I am soo ****** off and upset. I cannot do anything I actually enjoy about this job because I have to do all this data and targets and bloody paper work that she wants. Grrrrrr. *apologies for the language.
