After a full on last weekend putting together an oral presentation for a job interview and an interview that I walked away from feeling very unsuccessfull, two sleepless nights waking thinking of what I 'should have said' in answer to the various questions I was phoned last night to be offered a teaching position on the Remarkables Primary School foundation team - a brand new school opening next year for year 1 and 2's and in mid year the year 3 & 4's then in 2011 the year 5 & 6's with it being a full primary in 2012.
I have been teaching part time and more recently in a roll growth new entrant class at Queenstown Primary which I am thoroughly enjoying. It is reassuring to go into the next year with some job security. It will be a full on year with the school gradually opening and still being in various stages of completion but a fun challenge. The learning spaces, specifically designed tables and no teacher desks in classrooms, whiteboard also cupboard for teaching stations (lap top, resources etc) are innovative and space saving and I'm looking forward to seeing it all come together.
