You know when you just want to hug your kids because they have just made these amazing, stunning intepretative statements?!
OH MY GOSH IT’S SUCH A GOOD FEELING! Especially after yesterday when like I said, I did nothing! HAPPY DAY.
Had my first ever parent teacher interviews yesterday! I was really scared but so happy with how they all went. The parents were all very nice and had some great questions which was really great to see. I heard from a lot of the parents that I was their child’s favourite teacher/that they love me and one of my boys who I don’t get a lot from in terms of facial response and I think sometimes he thinks he’s smarter than me, his mother said that he thinks I’m a “very effective teacher” that I’m “different” and that he likes being in my class! SO happy!
I’m exhausted today and wasted a lot of time today in so many ways (4 periods off… not a lot done, but this was echoed across the school I think :)) and in year 10, over half my class was on an excursion so we played English Pac Man, Bang, English Celebrity heads. It’s a lovely class and I get along really well with them so it was nice to chat to them a bit and get to know them even more. They feel comfortable in my class which is so nice and I’m so happy to have them there.
If my lovely year 7 kiddies don’t know the difference between Primary and Secondary sources by the end of tomorrows double there is something seriously wrong with my teaching.
