Do you keep a diary, revealing your innermost thoughts about the profession you're about to join? Or do you make a joke of the pupil from hell and regale your friends in the pub with stories about Wayne and Dwayne?
The TES is interested in the new generation of teachers and what they have to say.
If you can turn a phrase and want to put pen to paper, we'll pay for any contributions that appear in print - be they funny, serious ortear-jerking.
