The Mayans were wrong, so we get to start a new year, which is quite okay with me I had had enough of 2012 and was ready to move on.
So what does 2013 bring?
- More education. For me that is. After having to take a break in 2012, I have enrolled at University of Canberra to complete the MEd I started at La Trobe a couple of years ago. I love learning and the university experience has generally been a positive thing for me, so with a bit of hard work I should have it all done by the end of this year.
- New challenges and new subjects. In the next week I will be starting the qualifications I need to be able to deliver Certificate I in Information, Digital Media and Technology. I was fortunate enough to be part of the writing group for the new training package during term 3 last year, it will be great to be able to deliver it to our seniors.
- A new focus. I have always loved planning and curriculum, with the leadership roles I have had over the past couple of years I have moved away from them in some respects. Stepping back to classroom teaching and working with a smaller group of people in a more informal way (joint planning, mentoring and the like), I am able to get back to what it was that attracted me to teaching and education in the first place. Working with students. The SOLO thing is a part of that.
- A new name. Rather amusingly apparently there was a rumor going around work at the end of last year that I was getting married again. LOL. no.
What about you? What does life have in store for 2013?
