One reason I think that some of my students keep in touch with me is because I have supported them throughout their time in my class, but also once they have moved on. If they've joined other classes or they've returned home, gone to university or any other path that life has taken them!
It's been a rocky four weeks - full of ups and downs - but now it's come to an end I'm feeling far more positive about March.
Despite the four hour daily commute, it has been amazing to be back at such a wonderful school. The management team are amazing and it's great to be working alongside old colleagues and also some lovely new ones.
It's safe to say that I finished up on Wednesday entirely baffled and exhausted. (And with 8 pages of notes on behaviour...)
