Thought Provoking Moment

One aspect that I will touch on here on my blog that I don't always have enough time for in class is what I like to call Thought Provoking Moments (or TPMs for short). In these TPMs I will find something in the outside world, my encyclopedia collection, or once I am oriented enough the world wide web to discuss. These TPMs are not restricted to any particular discipline of study and I encourage my followers to share their own thoughts and engage in discussion. Unfortunately, I cannot start these TPMs now as my flight leaves for the Herm Islands in minutes. But I promise that TPMs as well as full updates of my sabbatical are on the way once I get settled in at the cape.

Lots of faculty members (Including THIS GUY!!) are going on sabbatical to the Hermite Islands (Right next to CAPE HORN!!!!!!!!!!!!!). I can't wait. Us teachers have already decided that this is the theme song for the trip <object width="640" height="385"><param name="movie" value=";hl=en_US"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src=";hl=en_US" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="640" height="385"></embed></object>  (Saw Nelly last year in Cinci, he did a masterful job.) Unfortunatly my favorite sub Ms.Layzell is already teaching this week so we need subs ASAP. Contact me you don't even really need experience. I will have my laptop in the Herm Islands so I will send updates I promise!!!!!!!!!!

A Flood of Information

Hello Folks, my name is Thaddeus Tobert and I am a teacher at River Forest High. My students this year have encouraged me to use this World Wide Web so I have taken their advice. I will be updating this blog regularly about class activities as well as other fun and interesting spectacles I observe in my travels through life and the Internet. Although technology has many downsides, it is so nice that I can now communicate with my students after the bell rings. I can't wait to get started!

Thanks to all who follow me!
