To the kid who only ever wore shoes that were two sizes too big, I did my best.
To the kid who just wanted his dad to come home, I did my best.
To the teacher of 30 years crestfallen after being moved to a lesser role, I did my best.
To the neglected child who flinched as I gave her face paint, I did my best.
I did my best, I hope, for all of you.
I now need to stop for a while to do my best all over again.
To all teachers, teaching assistants and readers of the blog, make the most of your holidays x
