Last week was a big one with beginning the week preparing for my last week in Arts Focus for the first session. Switching gears from a chaotic classroom and driving to work in the afternoon has been quite intense, bringing with it lots of excitement to the day and by Friday I am beat! We even ended up last week with a night out with the ladies to a Thai restaurant at 8pm, I was ready to be on the couch by then but I made it out till after 10pm and had a lovely time catching up with friends.
We did pipe cleaner dolls with the kids on Thursday at school and they loved them and I have a few for the art show come January next year at Mountain View City Hall.
I was always fascinated with this picture of this caterpillar when I was a kid and I found it again in a bugs book in the 1st grade class I help teach. I loved the detail in the colours and the body on this guy and always wondered about that massive enlarged face of the caterpillar, it still fascinates me to this day – maybe it is the colours of this guy?
As it turns out my work has asked me to stay until school is out for the summer so I am very excited about this wonderful opportunity to work with an incredible cohort of teachers and gain so much experience in this education journey. I will be covering a maternity position and be working with the kinder and 1st grade kids. Time to be a bit more organised and balance all the work with my study that I am a bit behind on 😦 This is the last week of school before the holidays which I am looking forward to as we are going to the Joshua Tree National Park!
