Quick note

Thank you Holly for providing those pictures of the piles of snow – everyone here loved to look at them and are amazed at all the snow. and they’re even more amazed (and perplexed) that we have to plug in our cars @ night so that the engine doesn’t freeze over night ( *smiles*).
Thank you all for your prayers and support. The agency has found a few jobs for me next week (but still not as many as I would’ve hoped for – so it’s sort of starting to work itself out)… I will keep you posted. This job for next week is for the infant and nursery school (which are for the keystage1 – translation kind of like the equivilent to our kindergarden, grade 1 & 2). *Junior schools are yr 3 – 6 (grade 3 – 6 , then they enter high school for 3 years and then they graduate @ age 16 (I think it is) – crazy EH?! So I’ll keep you posted, and hopefully if i recieve good feedback over the next assignments I’ll get back on the guaranteed pay scheme and all will be a bit easier again… *I’m also thinking – considering how many jobs they offer me – looking at registering for another agency as well, so that I might be able to get more jobs… But we’ll see how it all turns out.

I’m keeping the faith, and just taking it one step @ a time. my-street5 This is my favorite road sign here – I think it’s cool (I know I’m weird). clayton-bradford3 here’s the wrong side of the street driving (*wink*) I’m getting used to the roads being flipped, but i will admit the closer I get to getting a car and driving the more scared I am that I’ll mess up and turn down the wrong side (*smiles*)

    Amy, I saw your blog listed on Kristin’s site and had to check it out. I am actually from a small town in County Durham, where my family still resides. I live in Utah. I am curious about how you ended up teaching in the north of England.
    My e-mail address is: veronicapearce at hotmail dot com. contact me if I can help you with anything. Good luck.
