New year, new term…..NEW JOB?!?!?
Finally, after much waiting, I took up my new post. I felt I’d had a decent break, I slept well and woke at the time I’d planned. I was in school early, eager to get cracking….until stuff got in the way. Like not being able to get in the building (note to self: if the school has a keypad entry, find out the code BEFORE the first day), not being able to connect to the school wifi, finding out my year 9 class have 6 lessons a week, not 5, and therefore one lesson a week with another member of staff, who teaches them on a Monday, and………
Yes, it was busy. No, I still don’t have a clue what I’m doing. But yes, it WILL get better. I am sure of it. Not least because I have my own room (although I haven’t really even begun to think about what I’m going to do with it), lots of TAs to help me, a very understanding HoD, and a corridor full of colleagues willing to listen, and help.
I’ll be fine. It’s just going to take a while to get up to speed.
I can’t wait for that day….!
