My fate is still resting in another person's hands. I haven't heard the result from the School Direct primary placement, and I'm scared. I would phone but I really don't want to find out at work, as I may cry a little and then have to go and teach gobby teenagers with blurry vision and red eyes... never a good idea.
So, tonight is probably the night when I either find out I am to be a primary teacher, or stay teaching GCSE English and Functional Skills for a college that has no idea what it is doing and makes staff feel horrific.
In other news, I was asked for feedback by the head of Teaching and Learning on my recent observation. I decided to be deadly honest and explain that I found the experience stressful, unrewarding as the person observing me did not have any knowledge of my subject, and that I didn't find it helpful. I recevied a reply back from the head of Teaching and Learning stating that it is meant to be a developmental process. I think she wanted to give me a telling off for being negative. However, it is seen as negative by staff and I wanted her to know this. I just don't know if putting my neck on the line by being honest is always a good idea! What would you have done?
