I would really appreciate some pointers or reassurance.

I worked as a MFL teacher in London for 4 years went on maternity leave and have since moved (internationally) several times and a loads more dc. So finally after 14 years out I want to return to work. I would like to switch from secondary to primary. Did a year as a volunteer ta to local primary school.

Applied for a post in an international school and have interview tomorrow (had phone interview about a month ago).

Would like to feel calm and prepared. But don't. Insane heat isn't helping. My interview outfit totally unsuitable due to heat.

Any kind teachers/TA out there willing to offer advice?

Just found this. Hope your interview goes well. See it as a learning experience as well as an interview. You may well get the job and if you don't you will have some idea of what you need to adjust for next time. Best wishes.

Worth going for the experience. Now you know what you are facing and that you can handle it. Shame about it not being PT. Well done.
