Quick Post: A Week In Work

My first week at work has been so rewarding already, and I’m a little bit in love with my job. I knew I would enjoy it – I’ve always loved working with children and teaching in general – but I didn’t realise how much I would adore helping the students in their lessons. Maths and English have really been the highlight for me so far; I’ve had a chance to revisit some maths and help people through a subject that can often bring quite a negative response. I’ve also been helping lots of students with their reading skills, and today was incredible as I feel like I really made a difference and got people excited about their books. I’ve only been their 5 days but the students and staff have made me feel so welcome and happy, that I’m already looking forward to Monday to do it all again.

I have to stay pretty confidential about my job due to the nature of it, so I won’t go much further than saying that this is seriously making think about a career in teaching more than ever before. I’ve been incredibly lucky to get this job, and to work with students who really have made me so proud even after 5 days. I’m going to get a bit attached to this little job, I think…

It is flippin’ tiring though; thank goodness for weekends off!

  1. Your job sounds so fantastic. All you need to do now is masquerade for Ned Schneebly and enter your class into a Battle of the Bands and you’ll be the best teacher ever!
