Thank you and goodbye (for now) English students.
I am so incredibly lucky to have had such lovely English students this year from Thorpe Hall and Chelmsford. So many ‘thank yous’, some ‘goodbyes’ – but hopefully not forever (as I always like to know how my students fared in the exam and what they’re doing afterwards). However, this is only Thank you and goodbye (for now) from my English students.
I do hope to hear from them and to find out how they are doing.
Teaching is a choice, tutoring is often a necessity for many but enjoying one’s work is a gift. Here’s to a well-earned summer and rest and a fabulous bunch of kids who have made my job worthwhile. Thank you so much for your kind words – it means so much. I’ll sip many a sip (of gin, red wine etcetera) to you!
I have subsequently heard GOOD NEWS regarding the GCSE results!
I hear my students have subsequently ALL passed their English GCSEs!!! They are now pursuing their dreams in further education (such as Sam)And Finn too!
And the best news of all is – I hear they are all HAPPY 🙂
And so am I.
Thank you to all the GCSE English students for their hard work, enthusiasm and cheer during the run up to these GCSEs – it is always a pleasure to teach curious minds who enjoy hearing and telling stories.
People have a thirst for stories in English lessons.
I have found that no matter what the adversity or challenge there may be in English lessons – by tapping into the love of stories most students find something they are passionate about. This passion can be turned into writing, which can be turned into marks to award for the GCSE.
The fact that everyone passed this year is testament to the fact that English is a subject for everyone if you can find the right interest.
