The Many Roles of a Teacher
Teacher (or to be completely up to date learning facilitator) - teaching the prepositions 'a' and 'an' amongst other things.
Nurse - to several children with problems ranging from a cut finger to constipation!
Social Worker - supporting parents with both medical and learning difficulties via a quick chat before school and phone calls to other agencies
Policy writer - writing a new calculation policy in line with 2014 curriculum
Dictionary - providing no end of spellings to a couple of children who simply refuse to write a word they cannot spell
Secretary - typing up and emailing to Governors the said calculation policy
Tutor - delivering a booster lesson to a small group of 'off track' children
Arbitrator - helping two children solve their differences
Planner - planning lessons (or was meant to but ran out of time) for next week
Playground supervisor - supervising over 90 pupils during break time
Play leader - playing and suggesting games on the playground
Police Officer - policing a class of 34 pupils so that they are able to learn
Its no wonder really that I go home at the end of the day pleading with my family not to speak to me for at least half an hour to allow me time to regroup!!
But do you know what? I wouldn't change it really!
