Hello, I'm half way through my NQT year and absolutely loving it. I really enjoy the creative aspects to teaching the lower school and my GCSE classes. I'm also teaching A Level which to a certain extent I enjoy, but I find the marking load pretty tough, and the lessons are a lot more stressful and pushed for time, so there isn't much time for creative teaching. I'm not sure whether this is just because it's new to me - I'm teaching it for the first time; or if my skills in creativity mean that I'm better suited to teaching the lower school. It's weird because when I started teaching I thought I'd enjoy the sixth form stuff more but actually I completely love teaching the lower school classes with a real passion. I've seen a job advertised for a head of lower school science and I thought "brilliant"! I'd love to do that! My school are just about to appoint a new science teacher and want them to only teach lower school (they haven't advertised yet). I'm not sure whether I should say "I want to be that teacher! find another A level person and I'll do that job!" or whether to persevere with it and it'll get more enjoyable. Your thoughts would be very much appreciated. Cheers!
