This week was my first week of teaching in my real class.

The nerves weren’t high, as I knew the students, having taught them earlier in the year.

But this was the real thing. This was me, in a classroom, with the kids as my responsibility. I not only had to make sure that I survived this first week, but also that they survived the first week too.

It was a week of adjustments, changes and growth. I am learning a whole new side of teaching, the day in, day out responsibility, as well as staff responsibilities like report writing and assessments. I am very lucky to have some awesome support behind me as I begin on my journey to become a teacher.
