Every Sunday (hopefully) I shall be posting a personal post about my life as a primary school teacher. I currently work at a primary school teaching 7-9 year olds. I have worked for two years with 6-7 years, 1 year with 7-9 and now I’m returning to my favourite age! My training posts on this subject were really successful and so therapeutic for me, therefore I’ve decided to continue posting on the topic. I will not be naming any children, or the school where I work. If personal posts aren’t your thing then feel free to skip these posts. I won’t mind! Bookish goodness returns as normal Monday-Saturday!
This week was as emotional as I expected. I think where I invested so much in building relationships, I ended up having really strong relationships with my class. I have thoroughly enjoyed this year with them and I was super sad to see them leave on Friday. I did have a few tears, I admit. So many of my class were emotional to leave me. I know very well that they’ll be like this with their next teacher but it’s so touching to see the connection they have with you in that moment.
I am officially on my summer break and whilst I need to sort out a new classroom and complete planning during this time, I am looking forward to relaxing and getting caught up on some reading! I’m also going away with my sister, Beth which I’m thoroughly looking forward to.
I want to get some work-related reading done this summer as well. I’m intending to adapt my teaching style for some children that I have in my class in September. 🙂
This feature will return again in September! Happy summer everyone!
