What is your advice about? Workload
1: Use holidays to try to get ahead with planning by at least a week. This gives you a buffer if you’re ill or knackered.
2: Don’t be afraid to politely say no if what you are asked to do is too much. Ask for time.
3: Mark maths in the classroom with the kids; important for them to see own mistakes and saves valuable time. NEVER take maths books home.
4: Don’t take on extra responsibilities to appear helpful. It will likely sink you.
5: Accept that good enough sometimes really is absolutely fine. It’s a marathon not a sprint.
