When it's all worthwhile

Another year over - and teaching is getting harder and harder.

I am utterly fed up of  seeing good teachers made ill -
 even driven to break downs by the pressure.

I see children and young people stressed as never before -
many of Megs friends were crying in exams - or even overcome by panic attacks.

I am disgusted by the ever increasing politicisation of our education system -
of curriculums chopping and changing on a politicians whim -
nothing properly trialed -
nothing properly resourced.

But then - I get a letter of heartfelt thanks from  a parent - 
and it makes it all worthwhile - 
for a time longer at least.
