I agree with you NewStrings. This is a forum and people will respond. However remember that these are all typed words not people speaking. So you may think you are getting discouraged but really it is just how it is written. I do believe that people on here just want to help and don't mean any harm so I wouldn't take things to heart. I will be starting my SCITT course in September and will be spending 2/3 of my time in schools. I expect I will get a lot of criticism/advice etc but truly you will learn morethis way than if the teacher just said "well done, well done, well done, well done" all the time. Chin up.
