So, the time has finally come to leave the school and the classroom that I have called home for the past 19 years !! 19 years !! Who would have thought it ? I started at this school as a trainee teacher in 1998 at a time when an OHP was considered to be avant-gardiste and students had 6 hours of English lessons a week !!
Moving on is going to be exciting and it has been coming for a while. Working part-time in multiple places was never going to work for me long term but has given me the chance to try things out and now I am ready to take the big step into full-time teacher training. It is going to be challenging and doubtlessly, at times I will think I was better off with my stroppy teenagers, but this is a real opportunity to work with future generations of teachers and to add my own little modest contribution.
I am not afraid … I am just very very excited about it all !!
