Things are hotting up now. This is the term that doesn't have an ending. The Christmas and Summer terms have a natural wind down all their own, marked by various traditional things that shout 'hey - the holiday is coming'. The Spring term doesn't have the same unwinding slow-down so we tend to accelerate into the wall at the end!
We're deep into observation season right now. I observed a geography lesson yesterday and am due to observe two other lessons (not geography) today. My own observation is on Monday. They call observation an 'entitlement'. That means 'you're having it whether you like, need or want it or not, so tough!' Such a shame choice isn't an entitlement too!
