    How long do you think you'll teach for and is there anything else you'd like to do?

    It's their choice. Standards are quite low so I don't blame them for being angry. Admittedly, it's not something I know everything about still.



    Similar things have happened before to me. The most important thing is to not over react or to react in a way that the students would find funny; easier said than done.



    No because you might want a degree like Speech and Language Therapy or Agriculture in which case other unis are just as good if not better.



    3 years



    No I don't think violence is ever justifiable. If we teach children that we can get what we want by using intimidation and fear then that's wrong. I would much rather have a positive relationship with my students.



    I'm not sure to be honest. All the people I know who are primary teachers all did a 4 year course.
    Don't universities like Harvard lead to a better life though?

    Nay. Makes decisions without any consideration for the teachers or the students. Rushes things through quickly (e.g. that retakes at GCSE no longer count for the school) in the middle of the academic year just to piss teachers off.

    Did you find it difficult to get on with students or to get them to like you and your teaching style?

    I worked as a primary school teaching assistant for a year on my gap year in 2010/11.

    I can summarise a primary teachers work week for you in terms of paper work/hours spent working.

    Bare in mind, paid hours were 9am-5pm.

    Monday - Arrive at work between 6:30-7am. Leave work between 5-7pm. Get home and mark books until you go to bed.

    Tuesday - Arrive at work between 6:30-7am. Leave work between 5-7pm. Get home and mark books until you go to bed.

    Wednesday -Arrive at work between 6:30-7am. Leave work between 5-7pm. Get home and mark books until you go to bed.

    Thursday -Arrive at work between 6:30-7am. Leave work between 5-7pm. Get home and mark books until you go to bed.

    Friday -Arrive at work between 6:30-7am. Leave work between 5-7pm. Get home and mark books until you go to bed.

    Saturday - Mark books most of the day and begin writing lesson plans for the next week.

    Sunday - Finish lesson plans for the week/maybe get the day off if you've been well organised throughout the week/on Saturday.

    I wanted so bad to write "mark boobs untill you go to bed" changing one simple little letter could turn that from a nightmare job to the best job ever.
