I've had a successful teaching day today. My line manager told me that one of my sixth formers - a tricky one that I have been quite stern with - had told the head that I was a better teacher than him! Then one of the most difficult students in year 11, who I had several run ins with at the start of the year, actually found me after her history lesson today to share something with me that she thought I'd find funny. I was really touched.
Everybody's getting a bit sleepy and ratty at the end of term, so I am afraid I might find tomorrow is not as filled with wins. But today has been good.
