Well I’ve now ticked off one of my 17 things to do in 2017 and it is one of my important ones! I’ve got myself a Teaching job number 16 on my list! I found out on Wednesday and I still can’t stop smiling it seems like its still a dream if I’m honest. I have some how managed to land myself my dream job and from September I will officially be a Teacher of Special Educational Needs. September seems so long away and I just want to start teaching now, but I’ve still got my final PGCE placement to complete first so that will pass the time. Until I start in September I really don’t think I will believe that I’ve actually got this job!
Other than completing number 16 on my list I’m making slow progress with my other items but I had already anticipated that at this time of the year progress would be slow. In general though life seems to be going in the right direction for me. I’m much happier than I have been in a number of years and I feel I’m beginning to discover who I truly am; being an individual for the first time since I was 17. Meeting new people and spending time with great company is also another reason as to why I’m on a bit of a high at the moment.
I still have down days where I do reflect on things, but everything happens for a reason and I truly believe in the saying that by closing one door I’m opening another to better things and better people.
