Well, long time no write. It has been a long time and a lot has happened. I got the job and am now working at a Catholic girls school. I had never pictured myself in this kind of teaching position but I am really enjoying it. I guess you can't really predict the way things are going to go in life. It has been a steep learning curve but both the staff and the students are lovely. I have found it all very intense though. You learn so much about yourself when you move into a new situation with new people. Insecurities come to the surface and you have to change so much about the way you work because you are working with different people and in a different environment.
I am hoping that this change and the challenge of extra responsibility will keep me enthusiastic about teaching, at least for the next couple of years. My husband keeps joking about training me up to be a Principal because he thinks that would mean he had a life of leisure. I don't think that is where my future lies. However I am slowly realising that you can't plan everything. I need to enjoy where I am at and the new things I am doing now rather than wanting to sort out my entire future. Maybe I can have an attitude of contented openness. Here's hoping!
