Not another School year

...for the first time since 1974


Every year, on the day after Labour Day, the school bell has tolled for me! From little "Robbie" in Junior Kindergarten, 1974, through high school, university, teacher's college, and now for thirteen years as "Mr.B", teacher, the first Tuesday in September has meant back to school.

Well not this year!

I guess we'll be somewhere in China by then. I don't even want to know. It'll just be nice to do something different for a year. My friends at work joke that I've had the exact same lunch every day for years: what am I going to do when we're travelling? Apparently, they've never heard of food drops...

Anyway, according to the Ontario Ministry of Education, I will have one student next year. She'll be in grade 3, and her name is...Anica.

For her sake, and mine, we're going to make sure that 2007-08 feels nothing like a typical school year.
