Oh what a day!
My body is aching but I am smiling. So many funny things happened and I have taken in so much info that my head is ready to explode, but it’s all good. I was punched, head butted, chewed and made to run A LOT but also cuddled and smiled at with genuine feeling. This is going to be a great job!
Today I got offered the job that I had applied for months ago. It has been a really long process, such is the nature of this type of work, but at last they phoned me!. I am going to be working as a Teacher in a Special School for Autistic Children. I can’t wait. I have always felt more drawn to this kind of one-to-one approach and working with Special needs. I didn’t enjoy mainstream education and having too many kids in my classroom, not being able to really cater for any of them individually. So, I am going to be continuing with my Art, and hopefully using my skills to develop therapy work for the students…and also I’d like to share some ideas with other people who have experience of Autism. I admit, I have not and will be going through a lot of training. So, my blog will be taking yet another path, whilst diverging back to my other more personal topics as well. I hope to connect with people about Autism and learn as much as I can!
Here’s where I will be working:
