Thank you!

Hey, I know it's summertime, but I wanted to say a big "THANK YOU" to the AiS Class of 2008. Remember how we would tell you that your blogs were making a difference? Well, thanks to you and the OC, I was one of 50 teachers worldwide to be selected to attend the Google Teacher Academy, located in the "Googleplex" in Mountain View, California (Google's world headquarters). I created this 1-minute video (see below) about your efforts and they must have really liked what you did this school year!

Wow! Awesome news. Congratulations. Let me know if you need a crash course in all matters technical before you go to Googleplex (the biggest number of all except for googleplex + 1).

Wow, Congrats Mr. B. Just wanted to say that You and The OC have truly have been one of the best teaching experiences of my life. The blogs was a great idea, it allowed students who are not as talkative in class still have a place to have their voices heard. Also, The class the two of you taught have truly taught me to look at each word and look beneath the underneath. I Personally enjoyed when people i have never l knew posted and commented on my blog discussing ideas, who knew arguing over lyrics meaning with someone in Australia could be so much fun. I again just want to say thanks to both You and Mr. OC for one the best english/history classes I have ever taken. Wish you both the best of luck for next year and i hope you win that award. Oh ya, I have decided to turn my blog into a movie review blog over the summer. Hope it turns out well.
