My last day went well. I taught. I got 6 cards. I got mobbed by 30 children who all wanted a hug or a high five (they LOVE high fives!). I got emotional.
I went to see the principal to say goodbye etc. All she had to say was "Is everything OK?" and I burst into tears. In the middle of the office, in front of the principal and 3 office ladies. It wasn't even a dignified cry. I sobbed. How embarrassing. Anyways she took me to her office to calm down. And tell me that I have a job next year.
I still need to sign my contract, so there is still a few things that could go wrong, but the principal really wants me. All going well I will start January next year as a year 5/6 teacher (grade 4/5 for the non NZers). It is just for a year but there is always a chance another position might come up that is more permenent.
I am excited, nervous, scared, happy, sad...just about every emotion under the sun!!!
