This one is recommended by me. It's an amazing song (good video too)!
This is recommended by Moe. It's pretty chill. Nice song.
This is recommended by Xhoi (apparently she has anger issues). Watch yourself around her!!
But Ms. Hughes should be told about this!!! (thanks Julie A!!)
I'm sure I posted it before, but it NEEDS to be seen again (and again and again...)
Heard a little bit of this on the radio today. Pretty interesting... and very much related to what we talked about in the Life Lesson about Listening and Filters.
(the narrator's voice is a little grating but try to put up with it)
Thanks to the mystery person (why not reveal yourself?) who sent me the following link. It all makes sense (well... kind of) now.
Saw all this when I took Simone out for a 1/2-hour walk. I told you: it's EVERYWHERE in my neighbourhood. Weird... but kind of funny too.
(yes, I blurred the last photo for reasons of good taste)
According to BCesis (our school marks / attendance program) this is a picture of Nikolina Minic. I don't remember Nikolina having such short hair. Great picture though NM!
This week's Student of the Week is Jelena L.
It was sad news indeed when Jelena announced that she was returning to Serbia in grade 10. I always enjoyed having her in my class and she was always a strong math student. But HAPPY DAY - she returned to us this year! What a pleasant surprise when her brother (who I had never met previously) walked into my PreCalculus 10 class one day.
Me: Wait a minute. Does this mean that Jelena is back at KG too?
Me: YAY! YAHOO! WHOOPEE!! (or something like that)
Jelena sort of surprises you (or at least me) when you talk to her. For the most part, she is pretty quiet. She's not the sort of person to come bounding into class calling "HEY MR WADGE!!), for example. But when I DO talk with her, she is always very thoughtful and interesting... and funny! She's an intriguing mix of reserved / quiet and wise / rebel. Kind of like when she dyed / shaved her hair a few years back. Who saw that coming?!?
One last thing about Jelena: she strikes me as being a good friend. She sits with so many different students in my class and she is always laughing with them, helping them with their work (patiently) and encouraging them. Such a great person!
So glad I got to teach you Jelena. And I am truly thankful that I got to teach you AGAIN this year after a year overseas. I remember Skyping (on a student's account) with you in class (while you were away) and it made me sad to think "I'll never get to see her again". But I did after all! Lucky, lucky me!!
I am your teacher. Obey me.
