How I Survived for Two Weeks without the Love and Care of My Teacher.

Extracts from this document...


How I Survived for Two Weeks without the Love and Care of My Teacher I was happy, happy to know that at least we have two weeks without the teachers. To me two weeks was a long time, especially without Miss Gibbs always yapping on about misbehaving, and that we are in year 10, we should know better. Anyway, I can't believe it; I am going to work with children. WOW. Do they think I'm insane; working with children, dream on. Seeing my own brothers and sisters drives me mad, what was I meant to do when I see a whole room full of them? Ok, here's the deal, if I get paid for the job, then, maybe I could have second thoughts. The days went like the speed of lightning, I was getting worried, and what if I accidentally smack a child in the face, like I do at home to my own brothers and sisters. To me it was the Day of Judgement coming to haunt me and God would give a tough punishment. By then I was getting worried, I didn't want to leave school, even if it meant listening to Miss Gibb's morning lectures in the assembly for the rest of my school years. ...read more.


As soon as I went inside the tiny eccentric building, there was a woman coming towards my way. She was wearing a large sized grey blazer, with matching skirts. As she was coming towards me she was smiling, I felt horrified, because she wasn't the sort of person I wanted to smile back at, she was obese and ugly. She had a red nose; I couldn't wait no longer to find out who the woman was, as I found it hilarious. As soon as she came to me she said 'So you must be the employee from Stratford School,' politely. She sneezed right in front of me and then even blew her noise, which was gross, yet I did not say a word, because I wanted her to notice my positive side. 'Umm, yes my name is Sanjida,' I mumbled Contemporarily I thought she was very polite, the way she welcomed me into the new unknown environment made all my nervousness inside fly away. From this day I realised never to judge a book by its cover. The first day wasn't as depressing as I thought it would have been. For the first week I was to work with the nursery children and just follow some basic principals told by Nadia, my first employee link. ...read more.


Anyway, back to the story, the boy's name was Danny. He came towards me and kissed me on my cheeks. I was surprised, what if a teacher saw me and thought I was a child molester, I would have been sacked immediately. I was panicking inside and went bright red outside, I felt it, I felt my cheeks burning. Luckily, I got my self out of all this, I got 'save by the bell', I went straight towards class 4, where I was situated after the bell went. Towards the end of the two weeks I realised how hard it is working with children. There were advantages and disadvantages working with them. The advantages were that you enjoy your day that is if you're fond of children, and you get to do easy work. The disadvantage of all this is that you need to make sure they are in your sight at every time and no matter how hot the weather is you will need to go out with them. Overall I have learnt the value of hard work and communication; I also discovered why Miss Gibb's shouts at us a lot. This work experience did help me a lot for my ambitions in the future. I will make sure that whatever I do in the future I make teaching my second choice. Sanjida Akhtar 11BY English- Assessment ...read more.
