This guy is hilarious. Plus, he obviously respects Algebra.
And you will not see ANY of the riders doing stuff like this!! Check out 2:05 and 3:20, if nothing else...
That's right! No Student of the Week this week. Instead, it's the first-ever TEACHER of the week. And, not surprisingly (but rather sadly), it's Mr. Scrimshaw!
First of all, I LOVE this picture of Scrimshaw. It's from today's staff baseball game (see below). Look at that smile! This is why we all love Scrimmy. The man is always ready for a laugh, always playing full out (and sometimes wearing funky hats).
Mr. Scrimshaw and I have had our disagreements in my 7 years at King George. We've had a few (not many) "contentious" discussions about what should be done for / about certain students. But there are two wonderful things that I can honestly say about this:
Some of my favourite memories of Mr Scrimshaw:
I really admire you for the courage it must have taken to decide to "walk-away" for (at least) a year, Steve. I know that you are going to have incredible experiences with your mom and your partner. I know that you will see wonderful things in your travels. I know that you will accomplish many great things (specifically on your cabin and boat) that you will treasure for many years to come.
But I also know that you will be missed by many, MANY people next year. You have made a big difference in the lives of many students and I know that they are sad to see you go. And I am too...
All the best Mr. Scrimshaw!

Wow! Ms. Ansari is one of Canada's Top 25 Immigrants for 2015! What an honour. Be sure to read the link below. I love what she says about her collage! That's a powerful way to stay focused and motivated! Try it for something YOU really want to achieve!
