5/6J I met Mr Felix in person on Skype. I heard about his inspiring story about how vital it is for global connections and to help all our students be Global Citizens. He was just as lovely in person as he is via email.

AND I was also so very lucky to meet Martin who is one of the students who regularly comments on our blog. Together with Mr Felix and all our Global Teachers we will continue to connect our students with the world. Tonight talking to Mr Felix made me so very proud to be a teacher and so very lucky to have friends who I can talk to and share wonderful learning experiences.

      Greetings from Ghana.

      Ashton………..I am really glad to be working with you guys and Mrs. Joyce, finally in life I was able to Skype with Mrs. Joyce yesterday with Martin one of my grade 8 students and I was really glad to meet Mrs. Joyce on Skype and to share with her some of my ideas and also to learn from her as well.

      I was so excited to meet her and I can not wait to meet you guys as well because you are mean a lot to me and I hope very soon we will Skype and see each other and learn from ourselves.

      I am really proud of you all and thank you for giving the opportunity to learn and share with you about what I have.

    Mrs Joyce I can’t believe that you skyped Mr Felix. That must of been exiting. You got to meet him in person well not exactly. Martin sounds like a very enthusiastic student. I will try to keep updated on who comments on our blog. Imagine how Mr Felix felt meeting and seeing Mrs Joyce for the very first time and talking over. Chantell just asked me why is it such a big deal that you skyped Mr Felix. I am like because he has never seen Mes Joyce and because they have never meet face to face.

      And he is in Ghana – the other side of the world. I have just been talking with a teacher who started her own school in Ugabda. We are going to help her set up a blog to connect her school. This is amazing. With Chantell not in our grade she may not understand the significant this is world and life changing stuff to be connect to us especially for schools in Africa. Keep up the great work Rennae, I am so proud of all the work you and Heidie do and how you are always encouraging others in our grade πŸ˜ƒ

        And because of that. If Chantell was in our grade she would understand the significance this world and life changing this happen around the world. I can’t wait to get connected with that school. I think it will be a great opportunity for them to learn about the global world.

    It was lovely to talk to Mrs Joyce whom we share the same passion and profession. It was like a dream when she mentioned that i was going to be helped to have a blog for my school-Future Generation Nursery and Primary School in Uganda. I have no knowledge about the blog, and i am looking forward to have one.

    Wow Mrs Joyce what did it feel like to be talking to Mr Felix! I hope that we get to meet a few of the students from Ghana and skype them as you did your self! I need to meet them I can feel it in my body that they are going to be our inspiration and we are going to have a wall of all our cultural friends and Joseline you sound very inspiring to me I bet we will connect more because we don’t connect as often as we should, but Mr Felix and your grade are very welcome to connect with us you are more than welcome thats what our grade blog is for!!!!.

    It’s enjoyable to hear that Mrs Joyce gets messages, and Skypes, from other people around the world, and something like this, makes me more and more, glad that I have hit the jackpot class. Keep having a fun life Mrs Joyce, you deserve everything you get from people around the globe. πŸ˜‰
