Thank you SKYPE!


I wrote a post months ago about using Skype so that absent students did not miss out on what happened in class.  Here is proof of how well it works!

Here is a video of another student absent from class that wanted to be a part of a fun day in Spanish class.  So we Skyped her in and sat her at her regular table.  Our adorable Fe had a sore neck and could not come to school, but she wanted to participate in our class auction.  We earn different currencies from Spanish-speaking countries for participating ONLY in Spanish during class.  We also lose money when English is spoken.  Our money is saved until the end of each trimester when we get to spend it on items brought in by other students and crafts that I sell them from Mexico, Guatemala and Spain.  I get these from Teacher’s Discovery.  Enjoy the video!  It is six minutes long.

People. People important to you, people unimportant to you cross your life, touch it with love or carelessness and move on. There are people who leave you and you breathe a sigh of relief and wonder why you ever came into contact with them. There are people who leave you and you breathe a sigh of remorse and wonder why they had to go away and leave such a gaping hole. Children leave parents, parent leave friends. Acquaintances move on. Friends love and move on. You think of the many who have moved into your hazy memory. You look on those present and wonder. I believe this is all part of a master plan. People move in and out of our lives, and each leaves his mark on the other. You find you are made up of bits and pieces of all who ever touched your life, and you are more because of it, and you would be less if they had not touched you. So far this is who I know that I am... PS I am a Spanish teacher (lucky enough to teach grade K-8!) living in the Chicago area, married to a handsome, intelligent and loving man, and I enjoy exercising and any thing that makes me laugh or smile!
