day 1627 Рkillarney growth 

doing some paperwork administrative tasks while reflecting back on my teaching career thus far. since i have taken over as branch chief instructor in 2014, killarney saturday has steadily grown. it used to hover in the eighties and nineties, but that has changed since. one hundred and ten students enrolled across my saturday classes this term is an impressive number. the steady growth in the number of students is a compliment i’ll take. it just goes to show that i’ve poured my heart and soul into giving the best instruction i could possibly provide. i’d say i can say i definitely earned the lead role and. i intend on growing and improving killarney with each term
