Hi, wondering what your thoughts are? I've been a teacher for 14 years & moved school in September after 13 years in the same secondary school. I work 2 days/week as have 1 and 4 year old. I've never been Head of Department as loved my old school and no promotion on offer but did have some whole school responsibilities. Now I'm back in the classroom and finding it hard to carve out more responsibility as only full timers are offered anything more. I don't even teach any exam classes just all loose ends of KS3. Just seen a colleague 10 years junior promoted to Assistant Head in a new school and kicking myself for not being more ambitious before I had kids. Overheard my boss (Mum of teenagers) congratulating colleague and saying best do it now as once you're a Mum your ambition goes. I wanted to cry as feel I work, and am as committed, as hard as ever, had 3 outstanding Ofsteds for what it's worth and get positive feedback but have never been very self confident in career stakes and tend to just get on with it. Am I doomed to just be the reliable classroom...
