Well that was it! I completed my teaching job for the summer! I collected my things, hugged my students, attended their performance, hugged my students again, said goodbye to the staff house and my coworkers and went home.
|This may be misleading.... I actually had MUCH more stuff than this.|
|Goodbye to my room! (if there was any other indication that this was the perfect place to work, the entire staff house was COVERED with Game of Thrones stuff)|
|Find the Totoro!|
I happily babbled to my mother-in-law about how great the job had been (super great) and how wonderful my students had been, aware of a heightening feeling of 'getting sick' that had been plaguing me for the past two days...
And yep! I am sick. Sore throat and cough and cold. Yaaay. But at least it hit me just as I was finishing work and not in the middle.
But yes. Loved my job. Love teaching. I figured if I didn't like children or teaching, this would become apparent during my 2-week contract and I would then rethink my future. Luckily, I enjoyed it immensely and feel much more confident about pursuing a PhD and eventually becoming a professor.
Sigh.... my first classroom:
Can you believe that I forgot to take a picture with all my students though? I forgot twice! Oh well... a part of me says that was meant to be. They were my first class, I will always remember their faces. And if they return to Centauri, I will see them again next summer!
I'm already being swept onwards into my next job, anyway. I was offered a job with the same organization, teaching evening classes from September to January in genre fiction. So it's back to creating those lesson plans...
Jewellery updates forthcoming. I have another tutorial that I will post this week.
AND the giveaway. Gosh, so many things to do and not much of a summer left to do it...
OH! And I made a website to showcase all the weddings I've made jewellery for:
If I've made jewellery for your bridesmaids and you're not on the website yet, send me some photos and I will add you to the portfolio! :)
