I was lucky enough that I secured my job after my first application and interview. I managed to get the job in Early May 2010 with a start date of September 2010. I was told that I would be teaching in years 3 and 4 and that I would be mentored by one of Assistant Headteacher. I had a wonderful summer and I remember in later August having sleepless night as the anticipation of meeting my new class became too much.
I began in September 201 and this would be my NQT year.
My NQT year

It has been a hectic but thoroughly enjoyable year. My school has been very supportive and I have to say that I haven’t always been open to accept and make the changes that were required. I eventually saw that things were heading in the wrong directions and that I had been taking my guidance from the wrong source. I subsequently changed the approach I took and came through with a PASS! I am now ready to start my second year and cannot wait
Next year (Second year)
I am now looking forward to next year where I will again be working within Years 3 and 4 and I will be coordinating PE. Although I am in-charge of PE my focus for the class will be the incorporation of my ICT knowledge. I plan to implement a blog and I would like to try and get a Twitter account for the school up and running so we can be visible in both these areas. I have seen the power that this approach can have and I feel this approach can be very beneficial for the school.
All that is left to say is
TEACHING IS A WONDERFUL PROFESSION
