New Beginnings! Teaching Assistant ;)
I have just begun a new part of my life. I have started a course to train as a teaching assistant at a local school and I am loving it! I applied for the course in Feb, and got a placement straight away but it has taken until May for the college to get things sorted and me in the school! So I started last week, three days a week Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9.00am to 3.20pm.
This is a change in direction for me as most of you know I make and decorate cakes. I have done a lot of voluntary work over the last few years in museums and libraries, taking craft sessions and other groups where I really enjoyed helping children learn.
What finally made me look into a course was my back. I have a bad back and cake decorating was isincreasingly more a strain physically,although I will still do them part time and the school full time if I am lucky enough to get a job soon!
The course will take around 6 months and I can't wait to see what is in store for me! Yesterday we were practicing for 'sports day', Egg and spoon race,sack race and many others which I remember from my childhood. I am also making the fimo creations which are keeping me busy! So that is why I have been a bit absent lately.
I will still blog though and thank you to all my readers who have followed me this far and here's to more years and new beginnings!
