I have just started work as a supply while I try and get a NQT placement. I'm 2 days in and am already experiencing a steep learning curve around some things. In last 2 days I have covered a year 3 class, yr 9, 10 and 11 so am getting a wide range of experiences. Having learnt a few things I was wondering if anyone has anything they wish someone had told them before they started. My main ones so far have been learnt following a last minute phone call this morning to cover a school and having 5 mins to get dressed and on the road. 1. Make sure the car has fuel the night before 2. Have a school appropriate outfit ready 3. Keep snacks for packed lunch in your bag in case there's no canteen Any one have any other nuggets of advice?
