I’m back…did you miss me??
I’ve had a huge break from writing on my blog as I felt I just didn’t have enough time to do it. But I think I have the head space and the time to try again.
Things have continued to be unbelievably busy; I’ve had a number of short-term contracts in mainstream and alternative provision. It’s been good working but a struggle starting new places over and over again. Putting on that brave face, trying to show confidence and not arrogance, getting to know new students but in the back of your mind knowing that you’re not going to be there all year – it’s tough. All I want is a long-term position.
The girls are great, they are doing so well in school and making new friends which makes my heart swell with pride especially with Big M. She continues to amaze me every day. Big M is still struggling with her speech but she has come such a long way and her confidence in reading is brilliant to see. Little M is beginning to learn how to read, she loves to show how good she is but I also think that she lacks in confidence, but maybe that’s because we put too much pressure on her which is something we have to be mindful of.
So this is where we are right now. We have a busy few weeks ahead us – Big M’s 6th birthday party coming up at the end of the half term break which will probably going to be jam packed with busy days (as I try to get my mind away from work!)
Thank you for reading and I hope to see you back here soon 🙂
