pure awesomeness

when you realise you’ve “raised” good year 12s…!

August 12, 2018

One of those days where I was totally up against it in terms of navigating, negotiating, and behaviour-managing, with my poor Year 12s walking into class after lunch with me in full-behavour-management-flight with a student.

Very quietly and respectfully did they all sneak in, dotted themselves around the classroom and quickly got to work.

After 2 minutes, a cup of tea appeared on my desk in a mug inscribed with โ€œBADASS.”

Then, when my back was turned, a muesli bar + a handful of Minties appeared alongside it.

All of a sudden, I realised my camera was fully set-up and ready to roll for performance masterclass.

While I was looking over some Composing + Arranging issues, a message appeared on the whiteboard, โ€œKwokkie: Tiny Awesome Teacher! ๐Ÿ˜Šโ€

And walking to Year 8 Music, I found the downstairs classroom door covered in post-it notes with various encouraging messages of, โ€œGO KWOKKIE!โ€ + โ€œSMASH IT!โ€ + โ€œHANG IN THERE!โ€ + โ€œYOU CAN DO IT!โ€

My Year 12 kiddies. NINJAS of little acts of kindness today. You guys totally got me over the line!

Day 11: Montreal to Charlottetown

First impressions

There are no traffic lights in Charlottetown on Prince Edward Island. You just cross the road and the cars figure it out, as well as figuring themselves out.

MIND. BLOWN.ย ๐Ÿ˜ณ

The convenience store looks like the one in Stars Hollow from Gilmore Girls. One brand of everything, like it or suck it up!ย ๐Ÿคฃ

I just walked along the waterfront against a glorious sunset, watching the sun make shadows out of the ships in the harbour.

On my way back to the cottage I am staying, an elderly man sitting in a rocking chair on his porch dipped his invisible hat at me, all the while softly singing Gershwinโ€™s โ€œSummertimeโ€.ย ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Oh my goodness, I think Iโ€™m going to love it here.

the most thoughtful…!

May 15, 2018

Miss Year 8: โ€œHey Ms Kwok, I went op-shop shopping over the weekend and Mum + I found this, so we got for you!โ€

My goodness! ๐Ÿ˜

In absolute honesty, itโ€™s not COMPLETELY me, but the fact that a one Miss Year 8 spent her hard earned dollars on something stupidly colourful in the most thoughtful + spontaneous way on behalf of me?!

That got me completely. Thank you, gorgeous kidlet. ๐Ÿ˜Š

I’ve come to this belief that, if you show me a woman who can sit with a man in his real vulnerability, in deep fear, and be with him in it, I will show you a woman who, A, has done her work and, B, does not derive her power from that man.

And if you show me a man who can sit with a woman in deep struggle and vulnerability and not try to fix it, but just hear her and be with her and hold space for it, I’ll show you a guy who’s done his work and a man who doesn’t derive his power from controlling and fixing everything. – Brene Brown

How GORGEOUS are these?!
