Still supply teaching?

***Updated below!***

No.

I won't lie to you!

I stopped working as a supply teacher when my maternity leave started.

I always intended to go back to supply eventually, when my son started school.

However, I won't be going back.

I have developed a form of arthritis called Palindromic Rheumatism. It is mostly under control and not degenerative - for the time being! I am focussed on raising my son and building up my reserves of health and fitness ready for an onslaught in the future.

I do miss supply work, and hope to step back into classrooms in some other form one day!

 

*** Update Nov 2015***

Through determination, 'clean eating' and juicing, I have been able to ditch my immunosuppressants etc., and I'm heading back into the classroom on supply! Wish me luck...
