i am doing an access to teaching course.
as i want to become a primary school teacher.

i feel like i have failed though
first i end up having walking problems.
so couldn't go to college last week.
as i couldn't move my right leg properly
and i was ment to hand in some work that week.
i tried to contact my tutor about this but he never replies to my messages i leave on his answearing machine.

i don't think my tutor believes me as i also sufer with depression.

i was ment to do a weeks work expereince in december but out tutour told us at the last mintue when it was.
all the other people inmy class have children and massage to get a place in a school where thier children attend.

i couldn't get a place ment.
To make matters worest i ment to do another wok experence in april.
i ment to do two weeks to make up for december.
and i have tried different schools and i get the same answear.
they dont have any places ments left.

i feel like giving up.
the last lady was really rude about it was well.
and made me wait 2 hours when i could of asked other schools.

You need to keep at it, even if you have missed oppertunities in the past doesn't mean they won't come up again, and they will!

Keep nagging your tutor, he is there to help you.

If this is what you want you have to stay focussed and be determined to get where you want. Put yourself out there in a professional and mature manner and they will be all over you. :)
Hope this helps

change everything you are

Hi there,

I think you should persist with your tutor. As was said before, they are there to help you.

Secondly, I think you should try to shake off the "I've failed" attitude. I know how this feels because I'm guilty of it myself.
Eventually I found that if I went into something with a "can do" attitude, the results are always much better :D I also suffered with mild depression but I came out the other end and it feels good :)

You will be ok. Have you considered any form of counselling?

Good luck

I agree have you considered counselling? You seem very down.
If you really want to become a teacher then you will make it. Try and adopt a positive attitude and get out there to show everyone what you are made of!
