The first page is about my attempts this year to try and be more prepared at work. I have a 'Things to do Today' book and I'm actually trying to use it. It does make me more organised, but I don't know how long it will last!
My second page is also about work, but about knowing my strengths, weaknesses and limitations as a teacher. I went into the profession through a love of my subject and this is what drives me when I plan and deliver lessons. Of course, I love working with the kids and hearing their opinions on things - there is nothing better than helping one of them succeed. However, I am not at my strength when faced with a child who is particularly needy but who does not accept help readily. Of course, with a child like this endless patience and persistence is required, but when faced with a class of 30, endless supplies of these virtues are not always present. I will continue to do my best. But I'm not sure it will ever be enough for this boy.
