Hope you are Ok
Hi Hayley, Just catching up with your travels as we have just got back from France after our holiday. It was really relaxing and very hot so we care all looking tanned now. I am pleased that you have decided to stay with the Jensen family for now. I am sure that they will be loking after you very well. I really admire your determination to enjoy your trip and I am sure that your personality will shine through and you will make some good friends in Oz. I will be really interested to hear how the teaching goes- I can imagine that it will be totally different to CC. The teachers that I have worked with from Australia have always been very creative and quite laid back as regards planning etc. I am getting the keys to my new school tomorrow so I will be putting all my own things into my office. I am getting rather nervous now as the time draws near. Keep positive and I am sure that you will be fine- thinking of you Love Jane x
