After a horrible experience as a cover supervisor in an inadequate secondary school, I applied for a job as a TA. This is in a good secondary, and I am feeling quite positive about this. I actually left because the cover job gave me too much stress and had a detrimental effect on my mental health (see my previous posts for context). In between quitting my last job and getting the offer for this, I had been working as an admin assistant in an office for very long hours and low pay. I feel quite proud of myself. This was the only job I applied for while employed in m the office job. What makes this better is I actually lost my job a day after getting the offer and have just completed my last day! I think I timed this right and this was too good of an opportunity to miss. My mental health is significantly better since I got some help (I went private). In addition to this, I fully intend to be consistent with the behaviour policy and get myself engaged while delivering effective learning support. What advise would anyone give after spending some time away from the classroom?
