Why is it that we as teachers always put work before everything else?? Have come home today from work with shingles (lucky me). Over the past 4 months have also had quincy (barrel of laughs) and something else rather traumatic, but for some reason I always sit worrying about work first! Planning has been sent for next couple of days, and I am sat trawling NUT guidance re. absence- terrified of going back for fear of getting a disciplinary. (When all in all I have had a grand total 12 days absence all of which have been genuine and supported with a doctors note). Am I the only person to ever do this???
