For the first time in a while, today I have left university still smiling. Usually I am tearing my hair out as I add another twelve things to my never ending to do list. But, this morning we had a really interesting lecture from an ex student about his role within leadership and management, the use of social media among teachers for sharing ideas and CPD and how it is possible to make a difference from day one, even as an NQT. Certainly empowering. Then this afternoon, we had a really inspirational lecture from a local Head Teacher regarding the interview process. My head is full of ideas, questions and wonders… Now to go and think about how I can ensure that I “stand out from the sheep” when I begin to apply.
