So it’s almost 6 months until I start my PGCE course, and to say I’m a little excited is definitely an understatement. However with that excitement comes a serious understanding of what I will be undertaking. I am nervous. I am apprehensive. I want to succeed.
I love being a TA, but after leaving my previous (short lived) career in Advertising, I knew my dream was to be a primary school teacher, not a TA. I want to be responsible for the learning of my class, and as much as I will one day regret these words, I want to be the one planning the lessons. I feel as emotionally prepared as I can be for what I will be doing in September, and wanted to create this blog to chronicle my journey and progress.
In the meantime, I have plenty of preparation and self reflection to do, to try and be as academically prepared as possible 🙂
Anyway, I hope you’re having a lovely day! I’m off to finish cooking dinner, carry on watching the final season of Lost and read some more of ‘Mr Stink’ by David Walliams 🙂
6 months until PGCE course begins.
Currently working as a full time TA in a primary school.
Excited! I’m trying not to complete all of my course prep tasks too early, as I’m worried I’ll have forgotten much of it come September…I’ve really been enjoying them, especially the recommended reading!
