Just a few more weeks and I am done . 29 school days to be precise. Don't get me wrong, if you're just entering teaching you'll love it. For a few years at least. For me I had a gut feeling of 'it's not for me'. But I ignored it and kept bashing that square peg into a round hole. I know some people get off on learning walks, book scrutinies and the like, well I don't. The NQTs coming in today are far more advanced than I am or ever was and I won't compete. They're amazing. It takes a special kind of person to teach in schools. I'm no longer that special person. This summer I am taking time out and finding the real me. I've lots of skills and stuff. I miss my husband. So, I have a stash of cash and a little job to tide me over until I find something on par with my expectations.
