I'm off to a christening today and I get to be Godmother! Time to get the iron out for the girls' dresses (it comes out like, once a year).
A few weeks ago I asked whether sending emails on a Sunday should be done. I'd had a few community members come back to me and say that if I really cared about LIFE/work balance, I wouldn't send emails on a Sunday. Obviously this got me thinking because I REALLY DO care about LIFE/work balance (see campaign above). I did a poll, where a lot of people who don't read my email said they wouldn't want it on a Sunday. However, I had so many email replies from people who DID read it saying that they really wanted my emails on a Sunday. #rockandahardplace So anyway, I'm going to continue sending them on a Sunday because you don't have to read them then if you don't want to. I'm happy to be filed until Monday. 🙂
Tomorrow Ivan and Grace are joining our ever-growing resource creation team. It's SOOOO exciting scaling a business like this, but I'll be honest, it's a little bit terrifying too! We're still recruiting and we've recently increased the salaries so perhaps creating or proofreading resources is something you have a burning passion for?
We've almost finished our current updating cycle for our small step maths resources. Before Easter, you'll see us introducing some new resources to go alongside what we've already created to give you more choice in your lessons. We're all about the feedback and giving teachers what they really need!
Anyway, best go find that iron. Wish me luck and have a great week!
