New school year, that is. For me this new school year means new country, new home, new school, new students, and new colleagues, as over the summer I moved from the frenetic city of Hong Kong to the quiet countryside just north of Lisbon, Portugal. This is my third international teaching gig and so far I am loving it here.
I created this short video about my summer to show my students on our first day together. I find that when I open up to them about who I am, I make myself more accessible to them. Being the Science teacher that I am I had them make inferences about me based on what they saw in the video. They all got that I love to teach!
