How can you argue with this video? These kids are cool.

Kids Connect is going very well. Our students are learning a lot, they like us, we like them, it’s an avalanche of busy and all good. Tomorrow we’ll open a window (read: video conference) with our counterparts in Amsterdam; we put the above video together in VJ-U today with Benton Bainbridge, who thought it’d make a great welcome when they join us on the Kids Connect island. More later, stories and pictures now:

    You make a difference in their lives. There is no higher calling. I’m so proud of you. And I love their work. And the manhole cover. Great art.

    As a fellow teacher, I completely appreciate your vision and your blog. Continue the great work!

    Thanks, Erin! Thanks, Ma. You know, I was just telling a friend today that the kids don’t give me positive reinforcement — nor do I expect it from them — and it sometimes leaves me feeling wearier afterwards than when I teach fellow adults. It feels good to get it from you. 🙂
