Tomorrow is my last week in my current long term placement and possibly my last day as a supply teacher. Would anyone care to share any tips for surviving one final week? What do you do to get through your day at school? My tips: Start the day with those I love... my other half and two dogs. Remember how lucky I am to have them and no matter how miserable a day I have at work, I'll always have these three to come home to. Have a delicious cup of coffee and a bowl of cereal. Pack a healthy lunch, including snacks, and a big bottle of water. What do you take for lunch? Maybe pack a flask with a herbal tea. Dress smartly, so I feel good and in control. Leave in good time to avoid traffic. I pack a book or a puzzle book (preferably Sudoku) for a little down time at lunch. Pack stickers so that marking is sparkly and pretty. Remember to breathe. It'll be over soon.
