    I think cover supervisors should be classified as professionals, given professional qualifications and be allowed to teach.
    I wish I was a cover supervisor.

    Oh excellent! Your daily supply pack contains an accurate map, a full staff list, up to date SEN information AND no lengthy photocopies of utterly irrelevant policies that I'll have no time to read - how helpful.
  9. I really miss parent evenings.
  10. A pay rise in recognition of planning and marking? Thank you very much!
  11. I'd love a coffee thanks.
    The leperosy has nearly cleared up now.

  15. "I have no money worries"
  16. Feedback to teacher:

    The children thoroughly enjoyed the copying from the text book activity and thus were fully engaged and on task during the whole lesson.

    'I do love to stand around in the corridor waiting for someone to turn up with a key to let me in the classroom.'

  18. "I agree that it's unfair that we earn more for doing supply than a permanent teacher does."
  19. Yes, we do earn more on supply than permanent teachers!
  20. As Lord Young said, we've never had it so good.
