About

As the NHS ‘Preparing your child for their first day of school’ webpage tells us: ‘The first day of school isn’t easy for everyone’. I completely agree, but unfortunately they haven’t offered ANY advice for teachers. Luckily I’m here to help!

I’m a recent graduate about to start on the Teach First Leadership Development Programme for primary teaching. In preparation I have been working as a teaching assistant in an inner-city school in London. I should also mention that I am a compulsive worrier (I bet you are too if you’ve read this far!). However, in the spirit of progress I am going to hit our worries head on as I prepare for first day of school as a teacher. If I survive, I might even let you hear about my first year.

Now a lot of you are probably starting thinking I’m going to try to put you off teaching. Like most professions teaching is full of people who like to tell you not to do it (cf. Medicine, Law, Show-business). But fear not, I am not here to scare you out of the profession, oh no, the aim of this blog is to provide you with ANSWERS and OPTIMISM.

And one more thing, don’t be a shy! If you’ve got something to share I would love to post it!
