The Gallery – New

The New Year hasn’t seen any new resolutions for me, but I did start my new job last week, so there has been a new regime for every one to get used to. New routines, new childcare, new faces and for me, after being a stay at home mum for over seven years, it has been a bit of a shock to the system. ย Especially the marking as I had forgotten all about that!

So my photo for this week’s The Gallery is the large pile of marking that I have just completed.This post was written in response to a prompt from Tara over at Sticky Fingers.

    Quite a few books there. I’d love to do marking just to have a giggle at some of the things children write in their jotters.

    I imagine that all the marking is definitely the worst thing about being a teacher, you just can’t leave the work when you get home ๐Ÿ™ How are you coping with the ‘new’? It must be strange to try and get back into it after all this time…

    Marking – being a teacher sounds great until you think of the marking.

    Oh, but think of all those eager minds waiting to learn new things from the new teacher ๐Ÿ™‚
