I have really enjoyed it so far! There have been a lot of positives. There is so much more to do here than I thought there would be. I guess the thing is that you have to put yourself out there and say yes to everything! Some challenges I think are, obviously, the school culture is totally different to what I'm use to and that's taken some getting used to but I do really, really enjoy the school and the people that I've met.
