Well I've been back to work (after a period of illness) for a few weeks and I've loved teaching again. The class are so 'teachable' and excited about everything, that it has made it a joy to come into school every morning (at 7:40!)
However..... I have found it difficult getting used to the staff dynamics - please don't misunderstand, the staff are absolutely lovely, but I've had a hard time in my head. I keep feeling that I've something to prove, that I've lost credibility with some individuals, that everyone is watching and waiting for my next 'breakdown'
I know that I'm over analysing everything and it will take time to get back into the swing of things... I know this and yet what I 'feel' is completely different. Reminds me of a song....'feelings, nothing more than feelings...' *singing very loudly and badly*
