I GOT A NEW JOB!!!!!!
About 6 years ago I decided perhaps there was more out there for me than just classroom teaching. I went looking for other options, I knew I still wanted to work with kids and that I wanted to continue to help them. So I settled on my Masters of Education in Guidance and Counselling. I worked full time and studied part time, attended Residential School during my school holidays and completed my final unit over Christmas holidays in 2009/2010...Finally I am STOKED to report that I have accepted a position as a Guidance Officer and will start the new role next term!
I am really really excited! I know that I am not the only person they considered for the job, so in the spirit of Thankful Thursday I am so so so thankful that they chose me!
I know it will be another big learning curve and I am looking forward to the challenge. I am going to be based at a High School, which, as a Primary School Teacher, will be a big enough challenge on it's own. I will still have contact with small primary schools so won't have to worry about missing out on working with younger children.
So whilst I am on the countdown til the holidays and finishing up in the classroom I have SO much to do to make sure my class is all up to date and ready to hand over to the next teacher...
Wish me luck....
Linking up with Leigh from Six by the Bay again for Thankful Thursday
