A Motivational Speaker


Here´s a really inspiring interview; TWC News Austin reporter Lauren Mickler interviews East View High School Football player Apollos Hester after the triumph over Vandegrift by one point.

Apollos Hester talked to the interviewer as a real inspirational speaker; here are some quotes from his speech (some food for thought in here…)


we started slow, but that´s ok because sometimes in life you´re gonna start slow but we are gonna finish fast

attitude, that´s all it takes to be successful, an attitude

it´s gonna be tough but do it for one another, do it for each other, do it for yourself, do it for us

it´s an awesome feeling when you truly believe that you are going to be successful regardless of the situation… because you are putting all the effort. all the time, all the hard work  and you know it´s going to pay off, even if we lose

when we lose, we are going to keep smiling

you can do anything you put your minds in 

never give up on your dreams

keep smiling

if you fall down and you can't get up, everybody will be there to help you get up



Wow!

Back to School! School Year 2014-15





Here we are again and what does society expect from teachers? Miracle workers!!!!








Dear students, here´s something for you to think about on the first day of this school year; watch the following video about self-directing learning at a public high school in a small town in the US, Monument Mountain Regional High School in Great Barrington, Massachusetts (click on the captions to get the subtitles in English -in case you need them) 

This is how they explain what the project is like: 

A group of students gets to create their own school-within-a-school and they learn only what they want to learn.

Would you like to learn more about this project? Click here





While our education authorities consider any kind of independent education in Spain, let´s try and do our best with what we have. There is some very good advice in the following set of rules, check the last paragraph, for instance:
