First week back blues, how do you get back into the swing of things?
Currently in for inset day and feeling the pain of another school term looming and the inevitable madness tomorrow is going to bring!
I thought I would eventually get free of the depressed/blue feeling I get at the start of the school year, how do you all cope with going back in after the long break?
Will never get used to it, even after nearly 10 years of teaching! Had such a lovely break but it always goes by so quickly.
I work in Primary and love inheriting a new class every year so that keeps me going, although they are bound to be very excitable today 😏
I'm usually so lazy over the break and went through so much chocolate I try to do a reset a week before term starts, get myself in order and start going on my runs again 😊
Helps me to get back in the mindset
First couple of days are always rough, I was dreading going back but it's been a relatively smooth start, although the heat isn't helping and my PPA time has been non existent!
Had a mad first couple of weeks so haven't had a choice but to get straight back into it! Had colleagues on the brink already, one brought to tears yesterday because of a particular student with SEN needs that requires about 3 specialist TA's that we don't have!
No wonder people are leaving the profession in droves, not good
