Due to anxietys and poor mental health I left in 2018...(given plenty of positive feedback from course tutors, and my placement - "you'd make a great teacher" "you have the correct personality" Ive joined a gym, lost weight, slowly building my confidence, I now realise that I "ran" at the first sign of difficulty. I started the course, having never worked a day in a Primary. Poorly motivated and assumed "school experience" would get me through! Ive worked many years in secondary Now, I am looking to apply for TA roles in Primary, reconnect end of this year with Uni, who when I left, left the door open for me to return. I also believe my skills tests, which I worked damn hard to pass, are still valid? Ive not felt jubilation like the day I passed my maths!! I see the many failings, to why it didn't work, I realise now, I should never have started. Has anyone been in a similar position? How would the university feel about my return, would it be awkward? I realise its going to be a tough year, but my physical goal is to be 2 - 2.5stone lighter this time next year. I feel more motivated (reality of some tough roles this last 12 months!) Thanks if anyone feels they can comment? Speak from experience or simply give any opinions? I hope this reads ok?
