I've been teaching for 14 years in four different primary schools, and have been a middle leader in two different schools for 9 years. I was an acting DH for 12 months. I have an MA in Early Childhood Studies and a NASENCO award. I'm happiest when I'm doing leadership stuff, lesson observations, leading INSETs, coaching others, meeting with inspectors etc. I would love to be a DH, the snag is I only have experience in nursery, reception and year 1. Do you think that would not only go against me in an interview but would also limit my ability to do the job? Also I have two children under 5. I currently work full time and it's a challenge though I love it. The planning, marking etc is just about manageable though I don't think I could possibly bring any more work home than I currently do (two hours every night, 5 hours at the weekend), would a DH role increase my work load significantly? I feel that if I leave it any longer my qualifications and experience will be out of date.
