Last couple of days of school now.Had new teachers and support staff in today and was a reflection for me as I looked at them and remembered sitting in the staff room at the beginning of the year thinking OMG how am I going to get my head around everything. Now I feel like part of the furniture which I know they will also feel very soon into the new year. Really looking forward to sharing this with the new staff.I have loved being part of the Secret Santa. So much fun doing all my gifts and seeing them give my person a smile. It’s been a heap of fun! MERRY CHRISTMAS¬†stock-vector-have-a-very-merry-christmas-hand-drawn-vintage-typography-greeting-card-lettering-vector-eps-341567528

Well were do I start? My year is drawing to an end and I can’t believe that I have nearly done a year.

I have experienced and learnt so much this year, I have grown in so many ways.I have started to embrace technology which I honestly thought would never happen.

I felt that when I first started I may not be accepted by the kids but as time went by that feeling dissolved. The students have got used to my presents in class and I now have some really nice relationships with them. I enjoy how I am accepted for being myself and feel my voice is always heard with respect.It has been wonderful working with some truly amazing people. I cant wait to work with all the new students that will be starting with us next year.

In the year I have worked across the board with subjects and probably my favorite place was down in the kitchen.

The students ¬†have taught me a lot along my journey as well. Learning in my eyes doesn’t mean an adult has to teach a child but everyone can learn something from anyone so we should all be able to embrace that. This School is an extremely unique place to work and I think the students here are so lucky to have amazing staff and facilities to help them find their place in the world.

Happy Holidays to everyone and have a safe and happy Christmas and New Years. Will see you all next year.
