Wow! What a first week back! 'Busy' is an understatement! Although I've been working my socks off, I've been having the time of my life *cue song!* I've a fabulous class of 20 children - they are funny, enthusiastic and keen to learn. I've managed (for the first time in 15 years!) to have all my display boards filled in the 1st week! This is due to having a great class, an amazing T.A. and an incredibly supportive partner - so thank yous all around!
I was also asked to be the 'Featured Teacher' in http://www.teachertime123.com/featured-teacher/ I was so surprised! A lovely opportunity!
So, to round up and stop me rambling on (I'm meant to be marking) I've included photographs of this week.
I've spent much of my life trying to be what (I thought) everyone else wanted me to be. After a wrestle with depression and an eating disorder I now try to be as true to myself as I can be. I'm a primary school teacher, mum to Emily (12 years old), daughter to Ann & Sammy and a friend to many. These are my thoughts - read them or don't - they offer an insight into what makes me tick.
