Why me?

So, here I am. Blogging. 

Why? Many reasons.

To be perfectly honest it was a suggestion of my fiance. He spends many an hour listening to; my rants about all that is wrong with our education system, the comical events of a day surrounded by 4-11 year olds and the staff room gossip. So, I guess he is hoping that if I blog, he wont have to listen so much! 

I always wanted to teach, sounds corny but it’s true. I used to line my toys up and teach them and always organised activities for my younger sister during school holidays growing up. I left college and went to work as a TA in a local primary school. My timetable was primarily supporting children with SEN for the first few years. I then began my teacher training while working full time and started teaching in various classes across the school. 7 years after starting as a TA I have just completed my NQT year at school which has high levels of EAL and is in a socially deprived area, so needless to say I have seen some sights!! 

I think it is fair to say that I have amused friends and family with tails of the classroom over the past year and one of the reasons I am blogging to help me remember the highlights of the job on the more challenging days! 

How long will I be able to keep this blog up to date? Who knows! With moving from year 3 to year 6 in September, taking on the role of maths leader and getting married in October it looks set to be a busy year!
