"Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets. So love the people who treat you right, forget about the ones who don’t and believe that everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance, take it. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said that it’d be easy, they just promised it would be worth it."

I finished the day at the Higher Level Teaching Assistant Celebration at the Village Hotel..
My colleague Monica Tomkiss invited me to this, the ninth, celebration we have done to recognise the achievements of some talented, brilliant, gorgeous and wonderful colleagues. Amazingly, we now have 618 HLTAs in Leeds with another 43 awaiting their results and a further 45 in training. This includes some who have followed the specialist route in primary PE, secondary mathematics and secondary science.
I am in awe of these colleagues who manage work, home and working for a qualification. The impact these fantastic colleagues are making is incredible and they have changed the learning landscape over the seven years I have been in Leeds.
