Discussion in 'Primary' started by thompsoncm, Jul 21, 2011.

  1. After a very trying year thanks to a difficult deputy teacher and an unsympathetic Principal, I ended the last day with great relief and sadness. However as always the children made my heart sing and renewed my faith that teaching is a noble profession.
    The next day as I prepared to leave town a group of parents waylayed me and said they realised what had been happening at school and wanted me to know they were grateful that I had been their child's teacher for the year. That I had been 100% professional and always put the children's need first focussing on the classroom and not the school politics.
    As a token of their esteem they presented me with a Parent Reference and invitied back to town the following year for the farmers field day because the children wanted to see me there.
    Its on the 25th August and I can't wait :)
