Hi I'm quite new to this forum.... Forums in general really. But since I've joined, I've read so many posts about people currently undergoing their pgce and basically having the worst time of their lives. Even people who have always dreamt of being a teacher. They're constantly stressed, surviving on next to no sleep and have just lost any sense of joy in their life. I feel so excited about becoming a teacher, but these posts have ignited a sense of fear in me. I know teaching is a demanding career and I know I'm not in for an easy year doing a pgce, but is it really that bad?
