- Wedding: June 2012
This isn’t wedding related so apologies but could do with a vent and maybe some insight.
I’m 29, 2 years qualified as a secondary teacher. I’m the second newest member in our department (a big dept) the newest is much older than me. I work hard and I’ve got great results this year, I’ve been really proud of myself.
The head has recently offered 3 promotions in the department. One of these I’m damn sure I could do. I’ve spoken to colleagues (usually lovely) about maybe trying to apply for it and asking if they think they’d take me seriously as a candidate and literally, people haven’t even bothered to answer me. They just start talking to each other quietly and going quiet when I try to join in.
I could really do with the money but mostly, I’m really insulted that my colleagues think so little of me.
