I also did some research on steel production. My class is going on an excursion to some steelworks next week, and I need to know what is going on. Did you know that steel is made of iron and carbon? Fascinating.
Now that the new school year has begun, my brain is bursting with a thousand different things... my kid's schooling, and my own teaching. This year I am team teaching in an Opportunity Class, which I am very pleased about. The possibilities with teaching an academically gifted and talented group of children is exciting.
In fact, my mind has been so focussed on school and becoming reacquainted with work mates, that last week flew by without me making any contact with friends and family... sorry!
