Yeah, I hate 'features of' too. I confess that I do far too much printing and no, I will not get it photocopied instead because I am far too disorganised to get the Photocopying Request Slip signed by the relevant Head of Department and then given to the Photocopying Lady 24 hours in advance. Stop treating us like children and I will stop printing so much. I do buy my own paper. I have never listened to a word of what is said in any inset training and spend my time checking which members of SLT are texting under the table. I am far too sarcastic with my class. I HATE teaching ICT with a passion because a) I don't always know what I'm doing and b) the frigging equipment never works. It's me who sometimes forgets to get her class to plug the laptops back into the trolley. Teaching 10 year olds how to recognise an abstract noun or a subordinate clause makes me want to weep. When the Head sends yet another email or another powerpoint round with 'helpful' suggestions on 'what Ofsted might be looking for' I only read them to check how many spelling mistakes she has made, and then I delete them. I don't always follow the behaviour code to the letter and occasionally make up my own rules depending on what day of the week it is. I am genuinely touched when my children make me cards / give me little notes. I am always filled with terror when a parent calls asking for a word.
