Seems like you are feeling better today, David- I am glad!
I just wanted to say that I think your new job is going to be wonderful, for many reasons, one being the students! They will be bright and energetic and motivated, and you will get to have them all year : ).
It doesn't matter where they come from, everyone under 25 needs to be seen and appreciated for who they are and adored. (We are good at that!)
I don't know why people over 25 can get so hard to satisfy!!
BTW, the low teens are cold for anybody. Google had said it was 21 degrees, but that was probably the forecast for the next day. You were not being a baby. And you know karma is going to bite me in the butt if I ever get to Alaska! (hint: I need help! I keep procrastinating!)
Oh those pups are cute- can they get any fatter??
PS I am curious- will you be teaching the students English, or teaching them how to teach English?
David, I took a look. I turned sound on, but can't see a way to record. Also, if I make a change like remove the map on the white board, does it ruin it for someone else? Last question, would it be okay if I sent the url to two friends so we can try it out together?
David, I got the newsletter and was reading and checking things out. I thought the TV room sounded good but I think it's a microsoft application and I don't think my Mac would like it(?) But my problem came with Scribblar. Each different link I tried I kept getting a 404 Page not Found message. Is that my browser do you think? Apologies for being a technodunce.
I always hated looking for a new place under a timeline- I'd have to at least be able to envision myself living in the space! But when I couldn't find anything wonderful, I never regretted going with convenient. That's something you appreciate more and more with time ; ).
What a baby- going out into the cold- you are a Canadian boy!! Just how cold is Seoul? I'll have to google it right now... If it's in the teens, I'll come back and apologize for calling you a baby :D
That was fun, David! And now I know how your name is pronounced! (Easier than it is spelled!!)
You did great... and you are a great interviewer too. Art is so funny, but not the easiest person to interview :D (Uh... I would't be at a costume party. I think those kinds of things are silly... Thanks a lot, Art!) He does have a great broadcaster voice, though, and it was an entertaining interview. I laughed several times.
These interviews are going to be great. Did you realize there is a bit of a time/speech synchronization lapse on video where you interviewed Art? But it seemed to be cleared up completely by the time he interviewed you.
You know who I would love to see interviewed? Dawn. I'd like you to do that one. Take your time with it : )
Now I am waiting for the tape of your TV appearance ; ) Just like a kid, always wanting more.
:D :D Just read your note closer... YOU thought he was strange and freaky! (Gotta slow down the reading!! Yes, I thought the same thing! But as a mom with really little ones (toddler- early preschool), his timing was just right for them and TV. Really, he was a genius with it!
The show itself was so slowwww that it's pretty unbearable unless you are in the land of goo, but separately, I always liked the videos and songs.
Oh David, don't disillusion me! Was he really strange and freaky? I was just saying to Chuck as I found this song (it's been in my head since the Anthony story) that if it came out Mr. Rodgers was a pedophile, I would lose all faith in everything. I guess he can be freaky and strange in other ways, just not that... or child or spouse abuse!
I browsed the PBS site, and some of his songs and videos really hold up well... here's another, It's You I Like
Hey David, I got over 100 hits on Portland Free School again today- and I haven't been on yet, so I know they're not all mine! (Something I always wonder about... the analytics on weebly are pretty sparse, who knows what they're counting)
Don't worry! I was going to add NOT to delete it. 2 is better than one and that's one of the nice things about the web, no problems with space (but yeah, I guess just of "kind".) Got interrupted in my reply.
Been working on the newsletter, now got to read a stack of teacher's "reflections". I wanted to do this course and now the reality is hitting me - replying! Oh well, c'est la vie.
I'm still working on how to get this magazine working well... it looks attractive but the rss of all the individual discussions isn't showing up consistently. But cool that under each item you can click and it will open up the whole category.
Hope the snow has gone your way....don't want too many more accidents and stranded drivers!
