I do long term and from one year placements I now seem to be on new term, new school conveyor. I am so tired of going to new schools. This is my third school this academic year (four if you include the one day in an awful studio school). Last year I was in three schools, though one of them was a return visit. Going through the whole palaver of learning new names, new buildings, toilet locations, fighting for a pass so you don't look like a visitor, photocopier numbers, sanctions etc etc etc. Then it's the whole solitude in the staffroom (if there is one) until someone decides you're not weird and they might talk to you, coffee, accessing catering and if you're very lucky a key to get in the rooms. I suppose I should be happy to have some work but I just find this all so stressful and it takes a few weeks to get past it and start to feel comfortable. Of course at that point you usually find you have to start explaining why you won't stay for meetings or agree to be observed. The sooner I get out of teaching the better!
