Every teacher knows the struggles of being at school while feeling sick. Kudos to those ladies who have survived through the seemingly endless torment of morning sickness! Here is how I’ve dealt with mine.
Last term I had my first opportunity to mentor a pre-service teacher (known as a student teacher in many parts). I know that he learnt a lot, but I think I might have learnt more!
In this culture of whinging about work and hating on everything, I came to a realisation that I actually really like my job and my school. As my husband said, you just need to choose which bulls*** you’re happy to put up with.
In a job that is so complex and sometimes difficult, it is nice to have colleagues who make the days that little bit brighter.
I love my job, I love my students, and despite the title of the article I even enjoy my colleagues. But sometimes we have to poke fun at ourselves, so I came up with my favourite types of colleagues that get me ranting when I get home from work.
