This year I was teaching 9 periods out-of-faculty. Even though this was in TAS, my first area of qualification, I haven't taught it for years, and hadn't taught any of the projects I was asked to teach. Suddenly in the workshop with classes in front of me and lots to learn, I was pretty well lost.
Luckily I had a colleague come to the rescue. Show me what to do. Come to my rescue with questions I couldn't answer or resources I couldn't find. Come into my class and help my students. Encourage, support, and inspire me.
Where would we be without colleagues like that.
So I wanted to make her something for Christmas. Something to show my
gratitude and give her something my time and skill created, to pay for
all the time and skill she shared with me.
Sorry for the photo. It was late at night when I finished and I had to gift it the next day. She loves it though, which is all that matters.
