I had both my appointment at hospital and interview at my old junior school today (for volunteering see post Moving on) I wasn’t keen on the hospital appointment, but the interview at the school was good. It was great to see my old junior school and how everything’s changed since I left. It has certainly improved since I was there and lots of new teachers! I start next week to see how I get on! Hopefully I can gain a bit of self confidence in myself rather than asking people what I have to do. I’ve always been a follower of people so to move into being my own boss in my head will be different but it should help my self-confidence. I’m going to be helping the kids with their work so hopefully I can follow the lessons!!! It’s been a while since I’ve been at school learning different subjects! My mum has told me I should use my initiative and learn to do things by myself rather than wait for someone to help me! I just hope I can and don’t feel a bit lost!! The head teacher showed me around the school and told me if I miss anything in the class just ask! Also the kids were very noisy talking amongst themselves so I hope I can overcome it all and listen carefully! I think the head teacher was impressed with how I cope with my cochlear implant and my speech!
I also think that I might ask If I could get a lead to connect to my laptop to my cochlear implant so I can listen to music although the problem with that is I will only be able to listen to the music directly to my cochlear implant so that means I cannot hear what is going on in the family house, like my mum shouting me for tea etc. I had a lead on my last cochlear implant but I never used it because I preferred to listen to everything really! The music, the humdrum of my house and family talking basically all the wonderful sounds you can hear with the cochlear implant!!!
