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.
