I found supply teaching to be initially isolating... I would spend all day with the children, and a TA (if I was lucky enough to not have them 'redistributed!') but as for adult conversation? A sense of belonging to a team? I didn't get that for a good of years in! It was at that point that I started this forum, 9 years ago now, looking for a community, a team to which I could belong and contribute. Through my websites there are now a few places supply teachers can find their place, and although I'm not teaching anymore, I love hanging out with them there!
