I would like to wish all the people who read my blog and leave comments a very Merry Christmas and all the best for 2009. I hope it will be as special as you are. It will be a special year for me as my birthday will read 09/09/09.
Take care and be safe. I have one more lot of Christmas decorations to share and then I am off to bed. I have been to a party tonight at one of my neighbours and had a lovely time. Watched the carols on TV down in Melbourne. I love to watch them every year.

done with Metallic Oil Pastels in green and red.After I heated it and cooled I painted over the whole bauble with Gel Medium. This gives the shine and also protects it.

School holidays are here and I am so happy. Not that I don't like my job, I love it but I have had a big year and feel exhausted. It has been a very successful year for my students and I am so proud of every one of them.
Year 10 did exceptionally well in their School Certificate. My class is the 4th class down and they got 9 band 5s and 4 band 4s which was fantastic. Their marks ranged from 74 to 89. Well done year 10. I went to their Formal and had a wonderful time. It was the best year 10 formal I have been to. It was so nice having my photo taken with my class.
Year 11 blitzed it. They did so well especially 5 of my students whose marks were well above the rest of the year. One of whom received a special award at a special ceremony. It was called the Victor Chang Award. This is the second award my year 11s have received in the last 2 years. I feel so proud.
Year 12-what can I say. I am over the moon. I am so proud and excited over every single one of their results. I knew they would do well. 4 band 6s, 14 band 5s and 4 band 4s. Their marks ranged from 75 to 96. 3 students just missed out on a band 6 by getting 89-grrrrrrrr.I also went to their Formal and it was fantastic. I miss them already.
33 years of teaching. How many more do I have in me. I work hard and get very tired. I receive so much from my teaching, the job satisfaction is so rewarding. These results say it all. It is more than the results indicate, it is seeing the students achieve their personal best that makes this job so rewarding.
So after marking 50 assessment tasks and working out questions for year 12 to answer from their booklets next week I am having a total break from school work until the last few days when I will plan for 2009.
Perhaps I might get some creativity happening.
