I posted here a little bit when pregnant with my son, but after having him I came out of teaching for a few years.

Now I am on supply (the UK equivalent of substitute teaching) and did my first assignment yesterday/today so starting to feel like a "proper" teacher again! I have a FT job lined up for the summer term (typically, when I will be in my third trimester with baby # 2 - just the way it happened - but I'll get through it ) in a 7-8 year old class in a local church school.

I'm Sharron, age 36, from the UK. Mummy to Daniel (age 5) from a previous relationship, who has autism spectrum disorder. Now with my soulmate Shaun, but we don't live together yet as he's a nursing student and away a lot.

We don't have grades in the UK like in the American system.

I'm a Key Stage Two teacher, which is 7-11 year olds. I prefer Y3 and Y4, which is the 7-8 and 8-9 year olds. But I'm qualified to teach 5-12 so can teach from Y1 (5-6) to the first year of high school.
UK primary teachers plan & teach all subjects, though you might team teach and/or co-ordinate some of your specialist subjects if you're working permanently in a school. My specialist subjects are English, Music and History.

I agree!

I teach 2nd grade (7-8 year olds) but am certified to teach grades 1 - 9. I can also teach ELL (English language learners) from birth to age 21.

It is different to Australia too!

I hear a lot about the UK - I lived there in 88-89 and went to school there (Year 2) and I have lots of relatives there. Mostly Kent, Nottingham and Liverpool, and a couple around London.
