    Job satisfaction seeing children succeed.

    Worst thing

    The workload is horrendous. Be prepared to work outside your contracted hours in the evenings and at weekends, and during unpaid time in holidays too.

    Also be prepared to have many members of the public slate you and your profession regularly and tell you how to do your job.

    Be prepared to be totally unappreciated by the government.

    Because you can only take time off in the holidays you'll find it difficult to get away due to school holiday costs.
