Supply Teacher Network - A Testimonial

Supply Teacher Network on FacebookThe loneliness of the long (or short!) term supply teacher is a condition known to us all. Shuffled off, often at very short notice, into schools the length and breadth of the country, our forays into the unknown often leave us feeling unnerved and unappreciated. We sit silently in staff room corners, we battle alone with unfamiliar classrooms, lack of resources and recalcitrant kids. Staff can be quite unhelpful, or at worst, downright unfriendly!

Of course, many schools and their staff and pupils are wonderful, and really appreciate our hard work. That’s why we do the job. It’s not always bad. But on the days when it is, it’s so good to know there’s Supply Teacher Network to turn to.

The site gives a real sense of community and comradeship. No matter what time of day, there’s a friendly answer to your posts. Help and advice, tips for resources, lesson plans and interview techniques are always on offer. You can get the lowdown on how agencies operate, what Umbrella companies really do, and what rates of pay you should be receiving. Even if you just want to moan about a particularly tough day, or share the experience of waiting for a call in the early mornings,  there’s someone out there who will provide the virtual equivalent of a hug and a cuppa.

In short, Supply Teacher Network is a Godsend.
