We were welcomed at 7.30am to the Faculty of Education breakfast, then at 9.15 took the march up Queen Street. It was such an honour to walk up Queen Street, traffic stopped, police escort, and hundreds of people along the side of the road cheering our congratulations.
My husband Mr Parker was very proud of all my hard work too, biting my hat to check it was real, just like they do the Olympic gold medals to check it is real gold.
It wasn't until the actual graduation ceremony, that I realized how important it is to celebrate such achievements and hard work. Currently I am undergoing further study at Auckland University in the Manaiakalani Digital Teacher Academy [MDTA], where in two years I will gain a Bachelor in Education with Honours. I look forward to doing it all again with my MDTA crew alongside me.
Today, back to school, to share my knowledge and help Room 10's Bright Sparks find their passions for lifelong learning, innovation, and success.
