I have taken over having a student in my class this term as the teacher they should have been with is absent. It's the first time I have had one in about 12 years. The last one did really well and got a top grade when OFSTED was visiting their college and came to observe. However I still hate being observed and hope that I still have plenty that they can learn from, even though I am the oldest fogey on the staff. I don't suppose that students realise that we feel nervous too.
