I write this as I soak in a tub of hot water ~ I know, too much information but a blog has to start somewhere !😊There is a glass nay a vase of wine on a table next to the bath and I am beginning to feel normal again. I have worked supply teaching for a few days. I survived, the children learnt something and I have no nits (I have checked) ~ there is much to be happy about 😉😉
In the UK supply teachers are paid the same as permanent teachers and are treated well. But it is hard work teaching children you don't know.
I have been like this swan, outwardly calm whilst paddling like mad as I shepherd and herd and show who is boss.
This was a "challenging"class missing their poorly teacher but I felt like the bee's knees when I finally had them eating out of my hand!
And now it is over and their teacher will return and I happily came home at 4pm with no marking, planning, data etc to do.
I love supply.
