March 07, 2011
Beautiful morning, a journey to school with Blink 182 screaming out of my stereo, a nice little Monday in prospect. Couple of year 13 sessions and I return to teach a year 10 class I last taught before Chrimbo. It is Physics so I am happy with that.
Not a lot going on to be contentious about on my blog. My timetable is nearly (finally) finalised, and I've managed to keep all my classes and just awaiting confirmation of my new ones. Staffing changes have been a real issue this year at school, but it has encouraged us GTPs here (that's me and Shuna) to be adaptable and roll with the punches.
Guess like most, the looming Masters deadline is starting to become more apparent. I know exactly what I need to do which I guess is the main thing. Peer Assessment: Not to Shabby (PANTS) will be a good read if nothing else, and its style may be a little left field. I hope it will be appreciated and not destroyed when marked. I am not very good at sticking to guidelines, and like to 'take risks', which is apparently the mark of an outstanding trainee....
Have received some exceptional support from my mentor in the last week. She has been awesome.
That is all I would like to reflect upon.
Many thanks, Dr Steve
