Those moments when you wonder what the point is

    Kinda had one of those earlier. I'm busy getting a job application done but its for an independant school, and i'm going to have to be very prepared for rejection because my degree isn't 'good' and neither was my undergrad uni a 'good' one. Which does make me wonder what the point is to me having aquired my various qualifications and what happened to the career I was hoping to get when i started my teacher training. I've not long got my confidence back after having a tough time in a school and feeling ready to walk from teaching when Gove et al start out lining how they're going to basically make teaching an unpleasant option.

    I think I just need to have a whinge to get things out of my system (unlike the lovely bronchial cough I've got post cold - drs tomorrow). I just want to be able to teach my subject and feel like i'm doing something good not only for myself but for those i teach.

    Hang on to that, that's why you went in to teaching.
    Glad the whinge helped. (I think most of us have had cause to 'rant/whinge/ whatever at some point or another.

    Yeah, been nattering with a friend thats a teacher. And one of the things, as i think i mentioned, is that whilst I do like teaching i'm dreding to think what the antics of gove and the head of ofsted are going to do to education.
