Life of a teacher: a play of one scene

11.30 p.m.

Teacher: I’ve finally finished marking. I’m going to bed okay?
Spouse: Okay love you.
Teacher: Love you too.

1.30 a.m.

Teacher: Your homework is there.
Spouse: (from behind the closed door) Hey are you awake?
Teacher: Yes…I’m finishing my work. I’m finishing this.
Spouse: Didn’t you finish your work ages ago?
Teacher: No I am finishing it now, the end of it. The end of this homework. Oh, just go away!
Spouse: (opens the door. Pitch black, she’s clearly asleep) You’re asleep.
Teacher: No I’m not. Can’t you see? I’m setting up this homework.
Spouse: Okay crazy…
Teacher: I know, he’s so silly! What am I going to do with him, eh?

5.00 a.m.

Teacher: (wakes up.) Ugh. Why am I always so tired?

    1. I teach high school and 6th form so that’s age 11 to 18, and I teach English Language & Literature hence all the marking (even in my sleep!). Thank you for the comment 💛 I will definitely write more snippets from a teacher’s perspective. Do you have any specific questions or topics? What subject/grade are you thinking of specialising in? 😊

      1. I’m curious about hat life is like for teachers, I haven’t yet decided t become one tho I think if I have to it’d be English. Or Economics. I have questions-so many. How does your day start, how busy are you, what ar the requirements, what kind of lifestyle (luxurious, not-so-much, so busy i can’t even think about luxury) does a teacher have, how to teach/tutor (that’s something I wanna do this summer!), what a job interview looks like for a teacher, esp an inexperienced on… and the list just goes on haha

      2. Hahaha. I’ll try to answer some of those in more detail soon but my advice for now would be try to get some work experience in a school. Volunteer or ask your old school if you can come in for a week to observe classes because that’ll give you a good indication of what age group you would like to work with. It’ll also help see school from the perspective on an adult/teacher rather than as a student. Tutoring is a little different to teaching – I personally prefer teaching a whole class rather than tutoring one to one but that’s just me.
