Kia ora tātou
This year has been something.
A special thanks to those that posted a question or a response this year. This community wouldn’t exist without you. Thanks to those who have contributed to the “One thing you changed this year”. Whilst some topics make regular appearances, others surprise me. (You can still add to the thread).
I’m taking a break from moderating the list over the summer. The last morning of moderation will be Friday the 18th Dec, and I’ll begin again on the 25th Jan 2021. (The break has started for some as I got my first vacation reply from a teacher today!). Like the majority of teachers this year, I’m pretty tired, and I encourage you all to take as much of a break as you can, otherwise you’ll begin the year already tired!
