I’m a primary-school teacher and also a parent. It always amuses me to think about all the similarities between the two, and the differences as well. So I thought I’d just, completely pointlessly, summarise them for you in a little comparison between teaching and parenting 🙂
Hello! I feel like it’s been a little while since I last posted… Or maybe it’s just because the past week has been manic! But anyway I just felt like writing a little life update in case anyone is interested!
You may remember that not so long ago, I was working as a part-time class teacher in a local primary school. I wrote a post previously all about the reasons why I left that job after just six months (read it here if you fancy). For the last few months I’ve been desperately trying to decide what to do workwise once the twiglets start school in September. I’ve finally decided to have a go at supply teaching rather than another class teacher role, so I just thought I’d share my reasons for this decision 😊 Just in case anyone’s interested 😜
This post is probably going to be a bit of a ramble so please bear with me!
So I’ve quit my job! 😱 I actually resigned back in November but couldn’t really say anything until now as the children I teach (and their parents) didn’t know. I have pretty mixed feelings about it to be honest – on one hand, I feel hugely relieved as I wasn’t happy, but on the other, I feel a bit of a failure and like I’ve given up. Throw in a huge amount of anxiety about the future and what I’m going to do with myself, and my head’s a bit all over the place at the moment.
Hello! So, as expected, I haven’t blogged since I’ve gone back into teaching. At all. Life has been super busy and it’s been a big adjustment for us all – I’m not quite sure even after half a term that we’re actually fully used to it yet. So I just thought I’d write a little about it and how we’ve been getting on 🙂
