my gorgeous, talented, fabulous class of 2018

April 1, 2018

These are MA POSSE. My gorgeous Year 12s, Class of 2018.

Love them to bits.

They are such a mixed set of personalities and abilities, but they care deeply for each other, lift each other up, and are learning to out-nerd each other with each passing day.

There are been tears, laughter, and immense amounts of coffee + chocolate consumed.

They inspire me to be my best teaching self, because of their sheer commitment and determination to be THEIR best selves.

p.s. As much as I’d like to think that I look like a student, that’s me in the red, nicely towered over by my crew. Don’t they look great?!

it’s started…

auspicious start to 2018

So, first post for 2018 + it would seem that all my dreams have come true! *laughter tears emoji because WordPress won’t do emojis + I didn’t pre-type this post*

While everyone else is setting intentions over their first coffee of the year, I’m laughing at this. *big toothy smile emoji*

Get yours now from Amazon, and happy first day of 2018. *grinning emoji*

I. L O V E. I T. 😍

Thank you so much to my 3 gorgeous god-girlies, Vanessa, Chloe, and Mels for being co-conspirators in assembling and ordering this amazing diary. This is the ultimate personalised 2018 teacher diary for Auntie Annie Gu-Gu, who quotes “Dead Poet’s Society” like the bible, and can lip-sync every word to “School of Rock”.

Back cover. The quote that I live by. 


And T H A N K Y O U to my cousins, Ian + Bianca, and Peter + Shelley, for raising 3 such truly beautiful little people.

I’m so lucky to be your “Cool Western Auntie” for whom you go to with your “Western People Problems”!

And the quotes inside to keep me buoyant. 

pure possibilibity
