Almost Ready To Come Back
My course is finally over and I am so looking forward to catching up with you all again.
I have missed you.
I am now a fully qualified English teacher but.........
I will not be working as an English teacher.
One thing I learned from the course is that I do not want to be an English teacher.
But the experience has been so worthwhile as I have a wonderful new job to look forward to in September.
I will be working as a Progress Coach at a sixth form college.
It is a fantastic college with around 2,000 students and I will be working with the teachers there to make sure that each and every one of the students in my cohort fulfill their potential.
I can hardly wait.
It is a term-time only job which means I will have some spare time to write.
The past year has been a challenging one with the loss of my wonderful father but there is still so much to look forward to.
Tomorrow should be my graduation and I was hoping to post a picture here but it clashed with my son's Leavers' Mass.
Both events were scheduled for 2pm.
Can you believe it?
Of course there is no contest.
I cannot miss my son playing "The Lazy Song" on his electric guitar.
So here we are raising our glasses to a bright new future.
Both of us will be starting brand new schools and fantastic new adventures in September.
See you all very soon when a normal service will be resumed!
