My workplace

This is my playground. I am in charge of making sure that everyone has something to do when it is breaktime. We have playground Disco once a week, hockey games, basketball, football, hula hoop skipping. We play horses and motor racing. We build dens and stables and have running games and sledging. We dig in the snow, paint on the snow and build with the snow. We are outside even in the coldest of temperatures but we all dress for the weather. I LOVE my job and playground activities are just a part of what I do. The other part I am the art teacher for all the children in this chool and I mentor the teacher in our twin school, I am in charge of the before school club and the after school club ooh and I am the health and safety officer at work too. I think I just needed to write down what I do to make myself feel good. I do doubt my abilities at times so needed to just remind myself that I am actually good at my job and I love what I do!

Thought of the day:
Give yourself a pat on the back now and again...you need it!
and I will give you a pat on the back too. Sounds like you have a great job and can be involved with all the students. Must be quite a long day for you. Do you do the before and after school care every day? We are lucky if we can really enjoy our work. Sometimes its really good to write down all that you have done in a day. It can make you feel very satisfied. How many students are there. I hope there are others to help you on playground duty.

@cruiser thank you! I work before, during and after school...the whole day! We have 59 students at the school and 28% of them have social and learning difficulties...at times the job can be explosive, and it can be hard to get through to certain children. We have also just had our budget for the year...to be able to run the school as it is today we needed to be given 7.9 million Swedish Crowns....we were given 5 million. We shall have to see what the future holds for us.

What a varied portfolio you have. With all you do, it seems as if they might not need any other teachers at that school. Thank you. I enjoyed your description very much.

@yrhenwr they get LOADS of time for themselves, I am just there to make sure there is no bullying and to keep an eye out for anyone who may be alone. I can start a game then I walk away and leave them to it!

@mbrutus filling my days every day...I do think the powers that be should let me have 48 hour days at times...hahaha

@huvesaker Yes. I'm not surprised you fee that way. One of the nicest people I know works as a playground supervisor here in L.A. But that is much easier here, where the weather is usually more welcoming and there have been drought conditions for six of the last seven years and thus very few rainy days. Needless to say, she has a very deep tan.
