100 and still going strong (?)

100! Woo hoo! I have hit 100 posts. I'm very excited. To be honest I didn't think that I would make it this far. I actually thought I would get bored, lose interest and not complete anymore. But here I am with 99 posts behind me and this one hitting 100!

Right, move on.

Finally I have finished the 3 nights of parent teacher interviews last night. I am now very tired. At least today I have only got a few classes to teach - but I have choir and a student teacher.

Choir will keep me entertained. 80+ kids in a room and me. I encourage their singing and listen for the harmonies. It is all good really. There is another teacher in the room but he is there for crowd control not real music teaching. We are preparing for a performance in a few weeks time.

Back to my student teacher. He finally taught a class yesterday and as I had thought, there is plenty of room for improvement. He has more presence than the one that Frogdancer had but we need to work on structure of lessons, engagement of the kids, tone and pitch of voice, and language choice when teaching. I am not sure I can be bothered today but, after his "I don't want to be here" moment last week, this is a major turn around and I might have to 'fake it 'till I make it.'

My apologies for a very lacklustre post - it is not what I had envisaged for the 100th. Please forgive me. I will try to increase my excitement level tomorrow.
