It always feels nice to be offered a job, doesn't it? Especially if you've just left one that sucked. Hurray! This is me today!
I had a 'trial day' today at a large primary school called Timberley, doing PPA coverage (basically I cover one lesson in different teacher's class throughout the day, while the teachers have their preparation time.) I have been doing the same job for the past two weeks at Nonsuch Primary school and have really enjoyed it - no preparation, no marking, and experience with different year groups and classroom teaching styles.
My experience today went quite well, with Timberlake being much stricter and having a better Head Mistress than Jervoice, my first school! The position I was offered today was to do PPA coverage for Monday to Thursday beginning Feb. 19 until Easter Break.
And so, I took the job!
