Apologies in advance but need to get something off my ever increasing chest . . . Just getting a bit fed up of being told to 'take it easy' and 'make sure you get enough rest' by the very same people who are expecting me to cram entire courses into half a term with low ability, very badly behaved pupils (with no TA support), produce work on mid-week notice when I can barely walk after a full day's teaching and do catch-up and revision sessions with pupils who are behind because they can't be bothered to work in class. Before you say anything I know these are all part of our wonderful job and I accept that it was my decision to get pregnant. My rant is that these people then say to me 'you look dreadful', 'are you getting enough rest?' and ' you have to put yourself and bubs first'. Make your minds up people please - this is just taking the mick. Rant over.
