My News….

…because I realised earlier today that if you’re not a work colleague, a friend I’ve seen recently, or a Joinee, you wouldn’t know.

Well, the gist of it is…as of this summer, I will be a Country Mouse no longer (in location, at least! I think I’ll always be a little country inside!). Guess who’s moving to London?

After interviewing, visit teaching etc., I’ve been offered an ace new post, and I’m moving to a new school. I start in September, and I’ll be living it up in the big bad city. Expect adventures aplenty, methinks! I will miss my current school so much (particularly my ace colleagues and the wonderful kids), but I am SO excited about this new chapter in my life!

    Great news. How far is London from where you are now? Are you still teaching the same sort of ages and class size?
