What the heck, I’m going to blurt it out…..

Whatever way I bring this subject up it will be seen as being controversial. However, I’ve had cause for concern recently when  students talked to me about the content of some of their past classes.  One thing I refuse to do is to comment on another Teacher to students…..

I had a night home in my own bed, with my own shower and my own bathroom, toast and vegemite and I could wear my uggies, heaven… Today I flew to NSW….Mittagong….and I begin teaching tomorrow. I laughed to myself as I walked across the car park…. there were 4 guys dressed in their work…
