Y5 - 7/365: Back in the Saddle Again
Work took me to Eaton Valley in West Bromwich today for my first day back since the Christmas break. I must say I do like the school quite a bit. The children are probably the most well-behaved of all the schools I teach and they're generally quite friendly.
I had a year 6 class in the morning with about 16 pupils and then year 5 in the afternoon and both classes held up the reputation I've witnessed of the school. It was bliss! I wanted to stay.
As it turns out, I wasn't the only one with a good day. Ryan had his first day back with the childminder and managed to stay dry all day! This included the four hours spent at Chilly Kiddy's. He did have an accident with a poo, but otherwise good to go!
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
