Over the Moon
I told myself I needed to try keep my weekends free for me. Georgia time. But oh my, I am currently jumping for joy. Well, I was before I sat at my MacBook!
I am sure all teachers can vouch for me when I simply say Term 1 is an organised mess. Due to the state of the mess - we are reshaping our Health and PE Curriculum currently. I feel so privileged and excited to be a part of this, and I look forward to seeing where the department will be in the future.
Today was a minor, yet huge accomplishment for me.
Earlier this week I discussed with my Head of HPE what we were going to include in the Junior PE Curriculum. I instantly noticed a couple of things missing - no dance and no aquatics units. I suggested these be included into the Curriculum because dance and performance is a part of the students' culture, and many of the students do not know how to swim or have any water safety knowledge.
I have just received an email from my HOD confirming these units will be included in the Junior Curriculum. I am so happy.
However, this is not all of my success, only part of it.
I have been asked to write the dance and aquatics units.
Over the moon. Way past the moon! THIS IS SO EXCITING!
I am making a difference!
