PP2 – 27TH February Diary Entry

This school seems very posh! The building resembles a prison, and none of the staff look very happy. There was someone crying in the staff room, and they wished us a sarcastic good luck. I have met some really supportive staff though, and I did feel quite positive about this placement . That was until...

It is my first week here, and I was supposed to be being eased into lessons..... but it turns out my mentor has gone into hospital with gallstones. Therefore I am taking over all her classes for this week. I hiep she returns, 2 of the years are starting a new unit, and there are no resources, no scheme of work, nothing. I wonder hwo she was going to teach it in the first place.

So I am walking into the abyss.... the students dont know me, I dont have at ablet so I cant show any videos or powerpoints, I havent got a photocopier code, I dont have a register, or access to a register....this is going to be hard...

I could have prepared over half term if I had known about it, but there you go.. so resourceless, mentorless, observationless.... I will be a cover teacher for the week... so here's to a proper start next week!
