Work has been better this week, i'm on top of everything and actually being prevented from planning too far ahead because we are now having to team teach, however my partner is a little unwillinging and after spending an hour sharing my planning ideas, then writing them up on Wednesday, she changed her mind on Thursday as they were due in and wrote a whole different set of plans.
I've been rather pro active at work also and instead of just complaining about things such as printers not working and supplies not being available I've adapted my lessons and sent formal emails and I'm also keeping an incident book for the class to record conversations with parents and incidents in the classroom.
I made a huge error in the week, I phoned a parent to air my concerns about their son. I knew which child I was talking about, I looked up the parents name but I dialled the wrong number, humble pie was eaten, I phoned back and apologised, offered the parent the details to make a complaint and agreed to buy the nanny a gift and apologise for the child's parent shouting at her. OK, I didn't shout at the nanny, but because I dialled the wrong number it meant the parent shouted at her for telling me an untruth about her son, which in all fairness the correct nanny did say. Anyway I can laugh about it now and my line managers were informed in case a complaint against me was made. The parent was just thankful I'd admitted my mistake and said sorry, which is all it takes these days to rectify a problem and I wish more people would own up to their mistakes and say sorry, the world would be a better place for it.
