Just wondered if I'm the only one who keeps putting off the inevitable .... planning, intervention prep, assessment etc, etc. Really will get on with it tomorrow but so lacking in motivation and I'm a middle aged NQT who really should know better! Joking aside I am finding the work load a strain, this is aggravated by my teaching partner who is incredibly ambitious and therefore works 24/7 and expects me to do the same (I received 6 emails from her regarding planning by the end of first weekend)! She is a very talented teacher and I admire her a lot but she is also a complete control freak and is prone to treating me like a teaching assistant - despite my attempts to arrange joint planning time she went ahead and completed MTP without me - I find this so frustrating. I'm sure she thinks she's being helpful but I really would like a little input - surely that is not wrong? Anyway sorry for the vent - I hope everyone else is in a better place.
