    Just linking up with fellow teachers who have had enough of being beaten on in another chat room - want to return to TES and fellow professionals

    Hi, haven’t been posting on the other site for some time due to its negative effect on my zen-like mind.
    Would like a safer space like this one! Haven’t posted here for years though.

    Glad peeps are re-connecting here. Even MN have threatened us - unbelievable! Some of the school education threads are been dreadful - very anti teachers. We are doing our best to defend our profession but I think we are losing. I have become very pro-union as a result of it.

    constant calls for us all to be furloughed and now calls for us to be on zero pay if we do not all go back on June 1. The MN Teacher Republic is fighting but I fear for our survival

    I have to keep reminding myself that actually, most people IRL don't think like those few posters. Theirs voices are persistent and the suck some waverers into their wake. But our parents have been pretty supportive; the two that sent pissy emails had other things going on and they weren't coping well. Once we'd responded, they were fine. I think that's the case generally.

    The post from LilyMumsnet was borderline offensive.

    They’re really not like that in real life. A couple of local parents are writing to our mp, the school etc, saying they think it’s too soon. Many parents are worried. I must say one mum I know did point out she has no choice but to send her child in and all the “it’s not safe” stuff on fb was upsetting.

    totally forgot about toffee vodka, sorry, it’s under the counter next to the whisky...

    That post from Lily was ridiculous. There is no way I would ever pay for that site.

    Fair point @toffeepotatoes :)

    It's been so long since I've been on here in anything other than a browsing way. I'd forgotten about a lot of the benefits, like the edit function.

    Oooh, an edit function you say? One that doesn't cost £5 a month too - we are blessed :)
