    I am yet to get a permanent job. I have had permanent part time for most of when I was teaching. I have been out of it for 3 years now child rearing. Going back is really hard as it is not easy to get part time work and casual is difficult as I have no one to look after my kids. I am desperate to get back though I love it.

    What do I do on a daily?

    Arrive at 8am, prep for the day. Check my planner (roughly devised at start of year, thorough version done by the start of each term) make any photocopies needed and find resources in resource room, library etc.

    Teach
    Yard duty
    Bus duty
    meeting
    clean room (after the kids have 'cleaned it' and gone home!)
    go through planner again to see if I need to bring in anything extra from home for the next day

    And that is basic as can be.
    'teach' is the most obvious, but also the most complicated!

    I love teaching. I've been part time for 6 months and going back full time next year. I've been teaching for more than fifteen years. This picture is why I do my job. ... This card from an 11 year old boy in my year six class this year! So sweet.

    It's a very busy job. Very busy. I often say how much I would get done if I didn't have kids in the class!!! Lol
    Usually arrive at school by 8am. Sometimes earlier. Prep the day. ..photocopying. ..get resources..set up activities.
    Teach!
    Do playground duty..keep kids in....mark books. Think about 4 lessons...say math. ..English. .science..history... That could be 120 books to mark just for one day.
    Usually leave 430 or 5.... But could still work longer.
    Always have parent meetings. .planning...staff meetings.
    But then you can enjoy well earned holidays. Plus many schools are becoming very family friendly. Way more supportive than in the past.
    Works for me with daycare hours too. Plus I intend for my daughter to be at the same school when she starts school. Which will make life so much easier.

    For me I make all my own worksheets at home (if I use them) because I prefer to personalise them and use my own fonts and things. So, a typical day is printing off any resources for the day from home. Then, at work around 7.45 or 8.

    Before school either yard duty or photocopying, setting up for the day. Teaching all day. Usually a meeting of some sort (often over coffee and cake) after school, or filling my program, following up incidents with parents or documenting any events. There's at least one yard duty in there.

    Then pick up DS from cc, spend some time together before bath dinner and bed, then more planning or organising in the evenings.

    During the year you have to clock at least 37.5 hours in training and development in your own time.

    I should say that teachers can and do just treat it as a day job and it really depends how dedicated you are - it very rarely ever feels 'done' iykwim. There's always more that could have been done, or better next time.
