One week down

September 13, 2009 at 5:38 pm (Uncategorized)

So one week down.  I’ve survived.  Just.  Some of my lessons were so boring I had trouble staying awake.  Not feeling quite as fabulous a teacher as I did in June.  In fact I’m feeling downright rubbish.  But the kids have stayed in their seats and written down stuff so I guess I’ve achieved something.  Which is more than can be said for my ability to socialise with the teachers.  I know we teachers are an odd bunch – that’s why I like teaching.  It feels normal to be odd.  However nobody seems to be odd in the way I am.  I’m starting to see how lonely and isolated teaching can feel.  You go off to your lessons and nobody else is with you.  You could easily get through the whole day talking to no-one but the students.  Luckily they are the entertaining ones.

Anyway this is a very boring post because that’s how my life is at the moment – boring.  So boring I’m sitting listening to the Great Western Customer Service line ring endlessly on my mobiles loudspeaker.  They don’t even have hold music or your in a queue messages.  Just “ring ring” endlessly over and over and over.  Until you get cut off.  Bleak.
