Spent the lot in secondaries

You must know, in your heart of hearts, that being in the same room as 30 pubescent kids all day and having to deal with all their baggage is a mile away from working in FE.

After teaching in secondary schools for 20 years, I was totally spent. My God, what a delight it was to enter the world of almost-adults. I was very happy to take the 10 per cent pay drop!
