What a whirlwind of a start to XP!!
I can honestly say that my mind has been blown over the last two weeks….. My first day of teaching at XP after moving from another school I met my crew – and we had the MOST fun filled and wonderful first few days as an excellent introduction to our new school!
We built spaghetti towers, talked about compassion, character traits and about how we felt about our places in the world. We played ‘Splat!’, did some fact finding about each other and generally had a brilliant time having real conversations as well as fun.
I’m super excited to be getting to know all of my new crew members over the coming five years – and we’ve already gotten to a brilliant start! We’ve played some great games over the first few days, and every day our crew sessions help us to learn more about and create connections with each other. We have a brilliant range of skills and personalities in our crew and I’m eagerly awaiting our discussions over the next term to come up with an inspiring name that suits us as people.
I’ve never worked at such a place as XP. I feel excited and proud to be able to be a part of such an incredibly unique and compassionate school. XP is a place where you can be unashamedly yourself.
I can’t wait to meet all of the parents of my crew… who we will call Crew KTA for now. But not for long…… Watch this space 🙂
