It's been a very long and tough final school term. I'm still running the "marathon" - albeit limping on some days. Ran headlong into some very steep hills (teaching Mathematics Extension 2 for the first time, in addition to teaching Mathematics Extension 1 for the first time... madness!). Combine this with the normal teaching load, writing over a hundred school reports and accumulated sleep deprivation - not good. Running too fast, too hard - feels like I've done a year's work in a term. In recovery mode now - still hundreds of end-of-year papers to mark but only a few weeks to go!
Like all marathons though, the experience is amazing - the views incredible. Lots of teaching ideas share in this blog once my energy levels are restored.
