A bit of background before I begin…

I first wrote a blog for Nexus back in October of last year about my struggle as a NQT to find a job (you can read that here if you haven’t already: https://www.nexus-education.com/my-dream-job-where-is-it/).

At the time, I had just secured my first NQT post after months of uncertainty, disappointment and growing anxiety that I would never find it. 

Ten months on, I am preparing to return to my fantastic school as a soon-to-be RQT and welcoming a whole new class of children into my Year 4 classroom…and I couldn’t be more excited! I had an absolute whirlwind of a time as an NQT (we had OFSTED in the week before Christmas and a global pandemic by March!) but I loved every minute of it. It was definitely a learning curve moving to online and remote teaching! I know that Covid has put a stopper on a lot of people’s plans (myself included) and that there are a whole host of extra precautions we have to be prepared for in September, but I just can’t wait to get back into the classroom and continue doing what I love to do.
