Hello! I'm on a 4 year degree course (science education with QTS), this is my second year and I'm on placement in a secondary school. I started 2 weeks before half term-my second day I got Noro, which knocked me out for two days, then I got a stinking sinus infection that I've only just gotten over. To add to the mix, I've got a 6 year old who demands (and needs) my time. I started teaching last week, at my full 50% time table. Not only am I doing science, but I have a form group too, along with having to teach history, PSHE and business studies. I'm really, REALLY struggling to get my lesson plans in 24 hours in advance and already I'm getting in trouble. My lesson plans need to be in extensive detail, and currently take about 2 hours each. If I'm making resources (which I'm finding I have to do more and more...already), that can double the time. I'm exhausted already. I worked all day yesterday to get plans in, but one teacher didn't reply back till very late and wanted me to make changes. Another doesn't have the internet at home so I'm trying to get these in extra early so they can be checked whilst there's access at school. I'm also spending very little time with my child, we got home today, I cooked tea and now I'm back to planning. HELP!!!!
