I’ve apparently survived my exhaustive, yet exhilarating summer holiday and now prepare myself and classroom for the fun ahead. I don’t think I’ve ever looked forward more to a school year beginning than I do with this one. I’ve made lots of new friends and have discovered so many great educators to follow via Twitter, Google+ and the Google Teacher Academy that I look forward to learning new things each and every day.
That will be one of our class themes this year. I hope to be inspired by my new batch of students and, hopefully, inspire them to learn something new everyday. Our second theme is, as you can tell from our banner, PIRATES! We will sail the high seas in search of fun adventures on our 10 month voyage together and look forward to visiting dozens of ports of call along the way.
To honor our learning theme, I present this incredible short film produced by Australian, Rick Mereki. Learn.
