Every Sunday (hopefully) I shall be posting a personal post about my massive new venture. I am going to University to train to be a primary school teacher. I will be trained to work with 5-11 year olds. It’s known to be a very, very stressful time so I’m hoping I can channel my thoughts and feelings into a blog post. It gives you an insight into what’s going on in my life and hopefully it’ll be incredibly therapeutic for me. I will NOT be naming any children, schools or teaching staff. I won’t even mention what University I’m at. I hope that’s understandable. If personal posts aren’t your thing then feel free to skip these posts. I won’t mind!
Oh gosh. I don’t even know how to begin this post but it’s completely different to the one last week. I’ve went from having no job opportunities to three possible opportunities. I have been offered a job in a school but I am not sure it’s the school for me. There’s two other potential jobs, one that I really REALLY want but I’m not guaranteed. Part of me really wants to hold out for that job, but I’m worried by turning one down I’ll be setting myself up for failure? I don’t know. It’s so hard. I want to follow my heart though.
It’s so hard to make the right choice for my induction year. The induction year is notoriously hard as you become much more accountable for what happens in your class. You are accountable. If the school is not the right fit for you, then I don’t think you’d be happy. I think I’m going to follow my heart though and hold out for the job I want. I hope that my passion for this school can come across and land me the job. I will find out within the next few days. Scary, but so exciting.
I would appreciate all the positive vibes I can get this coming week. Let’s hope I make the right choice and get what I want. It’s definitely a risk, but the school that I want is worth that gamble.
