A new term, and a new school
I’ve started a new job this year at a new school. This is the second time I’ve moved schools and I have to say it has been a much smoother transition than it was the last time.
This school is very close geographically to my last school and as such has a similarge make up of students.
I’ve now got to the point where I can remember most of the names of my students and we are working hard to put some real progress in the classroom.
It’s been a time of change all round really, my daughter started school this year too, and as such I have now become the parent of a school kid. That’s been weird all round but she’s enjoying it and I think we picked a really good school. My wife and I have been invited to attend a meeting there next week when the will tell us how they teach English and maths in reception. I’m interested to see what they say about it, particularly in mathematics!
Also this summer I finished my MA and I’m awaiting results for the dissertation. I think it went OK, but I won’t know until the brown envelope arrives with my feedback and grade. The dissertation was entitled “Investigating problem solving as a means to improving understanding in A level mathematics” – catchy I know. I enjoyed writing it and I may share a summary on here at a later date.
All in all its currently a time of change and that brings with it excitement and challenges.
How has your start to the new year been? How are your new classes? Have you started a new job? I’d love to hear about it in the comments or via social media.
