    Your senior management sound quite supportive. I wish mine were like that. I remember right at the very start of my NQT, my second week of teaching, a student said that I had a chode and then stuck his middle finger up at me blatantly. I called the senior management who spoke to the boy; he denied that any of that happened. The senior leader then asked other members of the class if the boy had said I had a chode and made the gesture and each of them said 'no'. The boy had threatened them beforehand to say 'no' when he knew that I was going to make a senior team call out as he was aware that they would be interviewed as witnesses.

    Nothing happened to him as it was just my word against his.

    PGCE is very tiring and there's a lot of boring lectures. You meet interesting people. You don't get a choice of school but it will be local. You can express a preference but they can't guarantee it.



    I'd imagine I'm quite Marmite. There's a few girls who despise me and a few boys who've said I'm boring and stuff. There are some students who like me though.



    Go on then. Complain to the Head.
    probably because you don't let them piss.

    Do you teach your students only to pass exams or do you teach them interesting stuff about the subject in general? Are your students much more knowledgeable about the subjects you teach or do they just know how to get marks and jump through hoops? What percentage do you think have zero understanding of the subject but just know how to pass exams and get marks?

    Which subject(s) do you teach?

    I teach maths. I teach for the test, especially for Years 10 to 11. There is just not enough time to teach them the interesting stuff that we want because we have a massive syllabus and a lot of hoops to jump through ourselves. Plus there is the need to have constantly improving results.

    1. I remember someone interrupted me when I was trying to say "I'm a dictator in this classroom" so it sounded like I was calling myself a ****.

    2. Fell over on a school trip whilst holding an ice cream.

    3. Nothing I'm willing to share.

    4. Not being able to find a classroom I had been moved to resulting in wandering around the whole school for what felt like hours. The school's room numbering system is ancient and completely illogical.

    You call yourself a maths teacher, there must have been some kind of numerical method technique... :rolleyes:

    EDIT:
    Also, what did 3 involve then?

    Not really, the school is age old and a lot of rooms have been demolished and some built so the numbers are not in order at all. The school does have a map but it's not very helpful.

    I haven't really thought of anything for 3 that I would disclose.

    I saw someone use the term 'artistic merit' on a social network and, since I'm autistic, I thought Autistic Merit would be a nice name to choose.

    I was also thinking about calling myself Asexual Tension as I thought that would get a few chuckles but I'm not asexual so. :dontknow:
