So it is currently the middle of the second week of my fist school holidays as a teacher. I have been trying really hard to make the most of this time by relaxing and trying not to think about work, however I find that no matter what i’m up to work tends to remain there. A constant thought for consideration and reflection.
I am both excited and depressed about returning to work on Monday. On one hand I am sooooo excited to see my students again and get back to planning, preparing and teaching each day. On the other hand I am very much enjoying this break as a chance to recharge my batteries and to think about things beyond what happens at work.
My main goal for term two as a teacher will be to add some creativity into the classroom and to encourage my students to explore new materials beyond what they were using in term one.
