Felt like I should post my story on here as when I was really struggling I looked on here a lot from advice and guidance. I had a difficult first two terms as an NQT, was at a very unsupportive school and took the decision to leave after two terms as the deemed I was not meeting the standards. I then spent 4 terms trying to find work whilst having the uncertainty of doing supply. I eventually after many interviews managed to secure a years post at a local school. I have since successfully completed my NQT year and have now been offered a permaent contract. I could not be happier in the school I am in. It is very difficult but we are very well supported and given the recognition for the work we do. I honestly feel that the two years of uncertainty and working harder to get this position have made me a better teacher. For all those people still looking, doubting if they can do it. There are HAPPY EVER AFTERS. It sometimes just takes a bit of time. Good luck everyone.
