Absent from
Being a mum, reading, road trips, BBQs with friends, spending time with my family, the beach, music, cooking, binge watching TV shows in the holidays and Lindt chocolate.
I worked at a hair salon, a fish and chip shop, the deli at Woolies, a bar in Surfers Paradise, I was a real estate agent, a travel agent, a kiwifruit picker, a mail sorter, a childcare worker and a disability support worker and I had some office jobs too.

Proficiency scales are ways for me to check if we are meeting our learning goals.

They help me to be a better teacher and they help you to understand more about your learning, making YOU a better student.
4) Glue or staple in your worksheets, and keep your work neat and organised.
Talk to your teacher or a friend about what you've missed.
It is your responsibility to make up any missed work!
