…At least that’s what Mr. Shakespeare said. I think that man really had a point. Don’t you?

Finding the joy today…read on…


Well there’s a turn up for the books – having had the week away from school, I returned to find that I’d been missed. I mean, PROPERLY MISSED.

Maybe it’s just that the cover teacher was “weird” (looked like Jesus and acted like Satan, apparently) or maybe I am actually just a great teacher…who knows, but I lost count of the enthusiastic hellos and sweet comments that I received today!

Awwww, bless them all

Wasn’t a perfect day, no day is ever perfect, but maybe absence has made the heart grow fonder; the majority of students were so lovely and grateful to see me.

I even had other teachers tell me that the students were saying how much they missed me. Aren’t teenagers funny? Just as I was doubting my place at the school, there comes this validation.

Perhaps I need to take more time off…
