    Friday for me for good! Time to move over for new, enthusiastic teaching methods.
    Au revoir to all who have encouraged me, argued with me, insulted me but never got the better of me ;) !

    I will still lurk about but will never be a school teacher again, I've done my time and too much unpaid overtime. If I had my time over again I would apply to be a union rep and fight for teachers' rights, anyone thinking of it, just do it - your profession needs you.
    Off soapbox for last time now, happy holidays to one and all.
    Joni xx

    It really is a fantastic world as I sit about half way through my 9th year of it.
