Hi everyone, I posted this in "going back to work" and was advised to repost here for teacher advice... I have had five years out with my children, eldest starts school in Sept. and the little one is 3. I have a job to start this Sept. full time but term time only as I am a teacher. I love teaching and have missed it and am going back to my previous school so I don't have to prove myself etc. etc. BUT having met with the nanny (who is a friend's daughter, fully qualified and lovely) and agreed terms we are both happy with, I have been struck down tonight with anxiety and a feeling of what have I done! Tell me it will be ok, positive stories and any tips most welcome! Thanks all!
Philoslothy if you are reading this, no need to reply as I saved your tips from a while ago in preparation for when I returned! They were very helpful!

Me too! After 10years! Only part time, still waiting to find out my timetable. Exciting and scary all at the same time.

Secondary! How about you? Just looking for work clothes. I think I'm going to find that tough as I'm so used to wearing scruffy clothes and now I'm going to have to be super smart. Currently looking for dresses with sleeves as I HATE wearing blouses.

I've been tutoring for GCSE and to my good fortune the school uses the same spec/exam board. I just need to read up a bit on the new curriculum.

yep, secondary for me too! Funnily enough have just logged off from ordering two dresses from Next..both with sleeves! (think most of mumsnet hate next but some of it I like) I hate blouses too as always feel constricted, plus I reckon dresses are easier..just one thing to sort out! Looking forward to getting out of jeans though!
