    Yes, at long last the day arrives tomorrow when I start my dream job! I cannot wait.
    Tomorrow is just meetings, and getting my lab ready, but come Monday I start teaching GCSE and A level biology in a delightful, small, international independent school a stone's throw from Belle Towers. My largest class size is 7 and smallest is 4 (or is it 3?)
    I get the best part of 20 weeks holiday a year too.
    I am very lucky and have Theo to thank in part for my success in securing such a wonderful post.
  2. wishing you lots of luck Belle. Hope it is everything you dreamed of and more
  3. That sounds very exciting. All the best in your new job, Belle! [​IMG]

    Thank you. I am sure it will be as good as I hope for. I'm the only teacher in my subject (biology) so I'm like my own HoD as well! I know from talking to other staff that everyone loves the pleasant working conditions, and staff turnover is low because it's such a nice place to work.
    In the words of Bridget Jones '(this time) I'm not going to fuck it up'!

    Good luck. Though it sounds like you won't need much.
    Nice for some good news.
  6. Do you have to do evening or weekend duties like the other place to make up for the extended holidays and tiny classes? Not that I can talk: I'm only doing 1:1!!

    Just to wish you well for tomorrow.
    And it HAS to be better than a job I once heard of where there were no facilities & no storage for chemicals for an A level post!
  15. Best Wishes Belle.
  16. Good Luck Belle! Must admit I am a little jealous of your life. Ponies and Dream school. If you ever want to swap [​IMG]
    Hope you have a fab day xx
