Next Year

I've been sitting on this information for a couple of days. It's exciting news, tempered a little by fear.

I have a permanent job with EQ. Well, once I get through the eight months probation that is.

I'm not going to tell you were it is: let's just call it 'W'. I wouldn't tell you where it is anyway, but considering that there are only approximately 30 students in the high school, I don't want it known where I'm teaching. If I manage to rant on here at some point, I don't want the school easily recognisable.

I'm not saying of course that I will rant, but just that sometimes I may.

I'm a little worried about teaching in a school with so few students, but am hoping that it really suits me.

We shall find out together.


  1. wooHoo! Congratulations! :)

    Totally get your need for anonymity, just want to know, are you closer to home than you were in your last placement?

  2. Nope. Another 1.5 hours away. That's OK though; I was in the running for a post 11 hours away (But still in the same state!)

  3. Hi there

    Thanks for dropping my blog.
    Love to find another teacher in a similar position to me. We're dropping to about 60 in our high school next year from 90 this year.

    Congratulations on the placement and I look forward to reading your vents alongside my most likely ones next year! I'm sure my elation at the moment will only last a short while!!!!

  4. Thank you Alycia. I'm really looking forward to starting on the first day this year instead of starting in week 3-6 as I've done for the past 2.5 years. Be with the year 8s from day one as their form teacher and year level co ordinator.
