I knew teaching was a lot of paperwork, I just had no idea how much. Today we have been absolutely bombarded with planning proformas, assessment files, IEPs, pupil trackers, CEDPs, CPD files... so many other pieces of paper which I can't even remember to list. I arrived with a bag and left with a box, which pretty much sums up probably the rest of my life, never mind just my day! It's going to be a very busy and very intense year, and I cannot wait.
I saw my classroom today too for the first time. My classroom, mine of my very own to do with what I like, and I'm now counting down the days until I can get in there and start decorating away 'til my heart's content.
All in all, a very exciting, very busy and slightly overwhelming but amazing day.
I'm an actual teacher. Still can't believe it...
