November 22, 2010

Need to do some humming tomorrow, get ready for the day ahead!

To quote the 1996 US President, Thomas Whitmore:

'Good morning. In less than an hour, aircraft from here will join others from around the world. And you will be launching the largest aerial battle in the history of mankind. "Mankind." That word should have new meaning for all of us today. We can't be consumed by our petty differences anymore. We will be united in our common interests. Perhaps it's fate that today is the Fourth of July, and you will once again be fighting for our freedom... Not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution... but from annihilation. We are fighting for our right to live. To exist. And should we win the day, the Fourth of July will no longer be known as an American holiday, but as the day the world declared in one voice: "We will not go quietly into the night!" We will not vanish without a fight! We're going to live on! We're going to survive! Today we celebrate our Independence Day!'

There may be some who think that in 1996, Bill Clinton was living it up in the White House. However, this is not the case. They made a documentary and everything about this guy Whitmore, who along with a couple of clever chaps, saved us all from 'annihilation'. Come to think of it, there was a guy who flew planes/UFOs, who looked remarkably like Will Smith. And another geezer, who was influential in how to destroy the aliens, who had an uncanny resemblance to actor Jeff Goldblum.....

But what has this got to do with teaching? Well tomorrow is close, and it represents the 'first full day'. teaching every lesson, meeting before and after school, break duty, and badminton club during lunch. It all seems a bit daunting. But not so bad that I've found the time to write this instead of preparing more resources...... As President Whitmore said, 'We're going to live on!'

Hope everyone is having a good week.

Deega, Wiggy, Pebs, Alex and Jim, you are not forgotten
