I have been teaching for 9 years (am 32yr's old) and enjoy teaching my own subject which is Design and Technology. Due to re-structures in the school my timetable can not be filled by this subject so this year I have taught Art and PE which I have quite enjoyed and have a backgroud in through hobbies. Looking towards sept 2011 My timetable is going to be very short again but this year there is no spear lesson that I can pick up in Art or PE and as of yet the school has not been able to tell me what I am going to be tecahing in this time. The big question is do I go part-time and if I do what effect will this have on my future career. At the mowment I do not want responsiblity and am happy just being a teacher, but this might change. I have thought of asking if I do go part-time, if this can be just for the year and re-view it at the end of the year. Any advise more than welcom. I have a meeting with the head in Thursday an feel I need to have made some sort of desision by then.
