A change of Plans

Howdy peeps, y'all OK? I've been thinking.... I love decorating my planner, but time is a thing I have a lot less of now. My planner has basically become a teacher planner with house accounts and online shopping sections. I'm cool with that and it works for my life right now. It also means I [...]

A Message for New Teachers

Howdy Peeps! An amazing colleague of mine at my new job is an admin on a Facebook group for trainee/new teachers... he wrote this beautiful post that explains exactly how every teacher feels; I just had to share because it's perfect (I have his permission of course). Post was: "Best of luck to everyone starting [...]

Weird Old Week

Howdy Peeps! Long time, no see (sorry, my bad). I hope you're all safe and well? This last week's been kinda crazy...

Happy Leavers Day!
