Newly Qualified Teacher
Newly Qualified Teacher
Let's face it, spending your days with children keeps you young and ensures that your vocabulary, fashion and taste in music remains current and relevant #downwiththekids. If that isn't enough to sway your decision, where else would you gain that sense of pride, when a class hangs on to your every word? Granted, it isn't always that way (especially when you're trying to teach fractions) but when you do get that captive audience, you know it's going to be a lesson you and your little learners will remember fondly.
But your NQT year is hard work, I hear you say - true, it can be at times, but who wouldn't want to make a massive difference to the lives of young people? Plus, the sheer chaos of a classroom - Noise, mess, laughter, excitement and pandemonium. What isn't there to love?
Scientists tell us that laughter, humour and joy are an important part of life. Laughing lowers blood pressure, reduces stress hormones, and increases muscle flexion. It increases the circulation of antibodies in the blood stream and makes us more resistant to infection. Learning can - and is - fun and that goes for the teacher too. Seeing excitement in children thrilled by a topic makes your day worthwhile. If you can blow a mind now and again, you will constantly be a source of interest. In fact, you are the life and soul of the party in the classroom.
It's often said that no day is ever the same in education as you constantly learn new skills - and this is very true! If you think back to why you began a teaching qualification, it was to teach maths, science, English or even because you held a passion for one of the foundation subjects. Who would have thought months down the line that you would now run clubs, referee sports days, offer counselling support and have learned an impressive array of arts and crafts skills that come in handy on those pesky off-timetable days.
The thank yous mean a lot too. The end of year gifts are great (chocolate? Yes please!) - but the cards and verbal gratitude from the young people who you have impacted are simply perfect. The parents aren't bad either! For every one that gives you a hard time and complains about the quantity of INSET days, there are twenty that worship the ground you walk on for going the extra mile for their child.
