This post is important and not only for les25paul problem, but for all supply teachers. In that after a couple of years on supply, we cannnot generally get school references due to the very nature of our role,i.e a day, a day there, etc. This makes it hard for us to get permanent posts or to sign up with different agencies for work. I hope the schools you know, will give you references, les25paul and I know your problem all to well, I am afraid. So try the schools you do work on a regular basis, you may get lucky.
