days spent beating back the seeds of doubt

A 360 degree appraisal, and a really nice discovery: not essential to my teaching, or crucial to my students' learning; quite simply, and irrelevantly, a nice thing to know. It turns out the vast majority of my students really like my lessons, rate my teaching as a strong motivating factor, and are happy to have found themselves in my class this year.

Believe me, these moments are rare, and do not last. But just for now, just for today, this year, this term, this week, I say: brilliant!
