I am currently blogging from my hotel room in Boston, MA after playing in my first game in the USA Hockey National Tournament.
(I’m not going to lie, that sounds really cool, doesn’t it?)
It was really difficult to say goodbye to my students yesterday. It’s amazing what can be accomplished in 8 short weeks. I felt like I really found myself in this placement and I had so much fun every day with each class. They did science and they learned and they loved it.
Since I could not be with my students today, I decided to record a video for them. It didn’t sit well with me that I was just going to up and leave without truly saying goodbye to my B day kids, so I recorded this video and had my CT show it in the beginning of class.
My CT emailed me this afternoon and told me that the kids loved the video. Apparently some even waved at the Smartboard when I said hello! I wish I could’ve Skyped into class, but I’m not entirely sure how I would have pulled off teaching in between shifts in my game this morning. I’m glad that my students enjoyed the video – it’s pretty powerful what you can accomplish with technology!
