Happy first Sunday of the year, dear readers! I trust you have, loosely translated from African languages, entered the year well!
So, as you already know, I’m a high school teacher. You know that right? I’ve spoken about it enough times!
Our academic year ends in December in South Africa and matriculating is quite a big hooha over here! Last year was my first year as a matric teacher which is as big a hooha as matric itself! I was very proud of myself when I got it!
Any teacher will tell you that the first year of teaching any grade is probably the toughest because you are still learning the ropes, and so as teachers we have fast become accustomed to stumbling the first time around and getting ready to go again and be better the second time around!
So the year was tough, learning a new setwork and all the administrative work that comes with teaching this particular grade!
In early January, the results are released nationally so you can imgine the anxiety leading up to the day! I was so blessed to recieve some thank you messages for some of my students expressing their appreciation for the year!
These were, once again, reminders of the impact we have on those around us. I don’t think we fully grasp that and I am here to remind you, no matter what, that someone sees you and you have, are and will leave a mark in people’s lives. Keep doing what you are doing!
Thank you for popping in. It is always a pleasure to have you here.Have a beautiful day😘
