I started working in my new school in September and I’ll be leaving at the end of this term. I chose to leave for a number of reasons. One of them being that the school is not located close enough to where I am living. I have done my fair share of commuting and I… Continue reading Going too soon?
Erm…yeah! I started my new school…I’ve lost my voice on two occasions already – so we all know what that means… I started my MA, which I’m enjoying but haven’t been able to attend the last two lectures, due to work commitments.

He… Continue reading Final week
