I've had one of those conversations where I nod my head while my husband continuously talks about the issue at hand. My problem is my job 'Teaching'. It takes a lot out of me both physically and mentally.
So the new topic today was for me to go in on Monday and speak to the head teacher and request to go part time, from five to four days. How will it impact on my life? Well at the moment I teach 19 lessons plus I have two cover lessons. By reducing my time by a day, I will not gain cover (yeah right - they always expect you to do one period on top of your lessons) and my lessons will reduce to 17.
My husband has just accepted a promoted post himself as HMI for Ofstead. So money may only be a problem until he starts the new job (two months). We can cope with that, but I can't explain why I'm not happy! Yes I'm very happy for my husband and his new job. But I'm not completely comfortable with going part time because I will be using the free day to plan my lessons, is that why I'm going part time?
I guess I will just see how it works out for me!
