Trials and Tribulations of. Supply Teacher Day 1
I’ve not even begun my Supply Teaching career and already I’m experiencing just how fickle this world can be.
Today I met with an agency to sign up to their lists. Before the meeting, she had already got 2 days’ work with Y1 this week and 2 weeks’ work after half term with Y3/4 (2 weeks time) lined up. I, naturally agreed to all of it.
By 5pm the Y1 work had been cancelled but the school had rebooked one of the days, this time in a Y6 classroom.
By 6pm, a day with Y1 had been rebooked but for next Tuesday.
At 8pm, I was booked up to a different school for a Y3 class TOMORROW!
I haven’t even taught 1 day and already I’ve taken on and lost more jobs than my whole life so far! I can see that this Supply Teaching malarky is going to be a difficult beast to tame but I’m always up for a challenge!
Roll on tomorrow and Day 1 of teaching…
