Day 185 of 365: Interoffice Memo


Notice the words in the middle of the photo...'staff meeting.' No, it wasn't a mistake that I received this memo as I am now the official Year 5 teacher!! The climax of my otherwise short-term, 1/2 day teaching and tutoring post came mid-week when things started a bit cryptic and ended with the offer of the job. Of course I accepted!! The best part is that this will more than DOUBLE my daily pay through the agency and it will give me proper experience teaching in a UK school. I will also be able to continue my one-on-one tuition with students once school resumes after break. Someone will come to my room in the afternoon a couple days a week to take over so I can continue tutoring on an afternoon.

At this point, the post will extend until the end of the school year, which is around the second week of July. I'm hoping that if things go well, it could mean a continued position with the school for the 2009-2010 school year as well.

I was in the class Thursday and Friday, but I wasn't to let on to the children that their teacher would not be returning. They will be notifying the parents over break and upon the return, it will be officially announced.

Things are looking up!
