Every teacher loves the special relationship they have with their class. Imagine if you could extend that relationship to the whole school. I’m fortunate enough to have the chance to do that. For the last two years, part of my working week has been teaching during PPA time in a local primary school. It’s hectic as I rotate through nine classes in 1 ½ days, but it means I get to spend time with every child in the school. I’m certainly kept on my toes as I’m in Reception 1 minute, and Year 6 the next, but as I’ve said before – I thrive on variety. I may not be a permanent member of staff, but when I can walk into a school and know the name of every single child, I still get a feeling of belonging.
