I write this post on my new iPad, whilst waiting for a series of apps to download, after a bittersweet day.
As my regular readers are aware, I am currently engaged on a temporary block for this term. I received word today that my temporary block has been extended through to the end of the year, which is good news. The bittersweet aspect comes from the fact that it means that I will be engaged temporarily rather than having been successful in my application for a permanent position.
On the one hand, I’m not too concerned as about it as I now have confirmed work through til the end of the year. On the other hand, however, to gain permanent employment would be nice. The feedback was excellent, and I was beaten out to the position by someone with more experience with teaching literacy and numeracy, which given that I only completed my teaching degree at the end of last year, is not particularly surprising.
Thank you for reading, and tomorrow we will return to more regular discussions.
