So during the summer holidays I found out that lots of the friends I made during my PGCE have decided to quit teaching after only completing their NQT year. I also read some pretty heartbreaking articles and blog posts about young teachers who have decided to leave the profession after only a couple of years. I decided to see whether I could find any advice or support for young teachers on the internet and I noticed something incredible! All I found were blogs written by older, more experienced teachers which only talked about education and politics. I could’t find any blogs which addressed some of the important issues that twenty-something-year-old teachers face today such as: cute work outfit ideas, what to buy colleagues for secret Santa, where to find high quality resources, which books are actually useful, how to have a life and be a good teacher, etc, etc… So I decided to start my own blog and here we are! My hope is that I can share some of my knowledge and ideas about teaching and life in general to help other young teachers survive!
Of course I realise that I am fresh out of my NQT year and still have lots to learn so please feel free to comment on any of my posts to correct me or give additional advice.
We can survive teaching together!
