One Extremely busy week down.

I have just had one of the busiest weeks of this year, yet it has also been extremely productive. It’s funny how in looking back, I managed to get everything done, still do all my training and still find down time throughout the week to have some ‘me’ time. Despite school trips, the usual staff meetings and marking schoolwork, catching up with my weekly tv fix, and running 29km this week, I still found myself spending numerous hours throughout the week preparing for a lesson observation on Tuesday and an interview that I had on Friday morning.

The interview marks a pivotal moment in my life here in the UK. Four years down, and with four years at my current school I decided it was time to consider promotions within other schools – and with lots of hard work and help from a number of people, I managed to get shortlisted and interviewed, and indeed was successful in getting the job! So in mid February I will say goodbye to my current school after four years and begin a new era in my UK life. It’s weird thinking that almost all my time living here in the UK has been at my current school, so understandably it will be an emotional time when I leave. But that aside – I will have amazing opportunities ahead of me when I take up the role of Phase Leader of KS1 and ICT Leader. Big responsibilities and a considerable payrise too.

But for now, my focus remains on my training and this week I clocked up 29km – which included a 13km run on Saturday morning. It’s one way to clear the mind – and in fact do lots of my thinking about what is going on around me.

This week’s planned KM:  29

This week’s actual KM: 29

Total KM: 104
