Sunday Salon: Back to Work / Villette
You may have noticed that my posting rate has slowed considerably lately, and the reason for this is that I went back to work two weeks ago. After six long weeks of honeymooning and reading as much as I wanted to, it's been quite an adjustment getting back into the swing of busy every day life.
I've had a good start to this academic year. I have a new class, a new classroom to set up and I'm teaching in a year group that I've never taught in before. All this results in work being more time-demanding than it was last year, when I had a new class but in the same year group in the same classroom. It is nice to have a change and a bit of a challenge but it does encroach on my reading time.
Work should be settling down over the next few weeks as I get more used to my new working schedule, so I'm looking forward to reading and posting lots more soon.
