I got the promotion! I've been offered the role of grade 9 department head and arts head at my school.
Thanks to all of you who wished me well, and put up with my endless worrying over the past 3 months!
I think it's time to bring on some of this:
I won't lie, I'm a little nervous about the job. I'll be teaching new subjects next year (including grade 7 math), have my own homeroom and have the added responsibilities of managing a grade and department. But, it's a huge career move and I'm really excited about it.
