Well hello everyone, thanks for dropping by to see the latest news on my adventure.


Tuesday 20th July

After opening a mound of presents, watching the video of my leaving assembly, reading my memory books and looking through all the cards I am truly overwhelmed by the kindness and support shown by everyone at Mount Pleasant.  My last day was one I won't forget for a long time.  Check out some of the pictures I took during the last couple of days in school.  I hope you are all having a wonderful holiday.  I have just started to pack my belongings into some boxes; I will keep you posted with my progress.  Don't forget you can keep in touch using my e-mail or on thinkquest (if you can't access thinkquest, send me an e-mail and I will get you a new password.

Stay smiling Mount Pleasant!!  Mr S

Hello from Chicago!! I am here and settled in.  I have a wonderful apartment overlooking Lake Michigan.  I am starting school today, so I will be getting in a cab soon.  I have already had pizza and it lived up to my standards.  I hope you are all having a wonderful holiday.

Hello everyone, just a short note to wish you all the best of luck for the start of the new school year.  I have been at my new school for two weeks now learning all about it.  My new class, the Outstanding Owls (year 1) are starting on Monday so I have been busy getting everything ready for them to start.  I've been up the John Handcock tower with the other teacher's for brunch and I've even had some time to spend on the beach!  I hope you have all had a great and safe summer and I lookforward to hearing all about your new classes and the exciting things you are doing through thinkquest.

Hi everyone!

I hadn't realised it was over a month since I wrote here last, I have been very busy.  I am all settled into my new school now and getting used to the longer day (8am - 3:30pm).  The weather is still warm here at the moment but there could be a chance of snow soon, hopefully that won't happen yet!  You all know what happened last time it snowed at home!

I have kept a close eye on the website to keep up to date with all the goings on at MPS, the golf day looked like great fun! I showed this video to the children in my class and they loved it, I was very sad to miss out on that, I hope you all had a great time. 

Let me know how you are all getting on at school, I am still on thinkquest and have my school email address

Keep smiling,

Mr S

Hello Mount Pleasant,

I have been checking out the website again and looking at all the exciting activities that are going on.  I hope everyone is well and enjoyed your snow day.

I'm currently in Atlanta, Georgia trying to get home to the UK in time for Christmas.  Fingers crossed I will be able to get a flight today.

I wish all of you a happy and restful Christmas and hope to bump into some of you over the break.

Keep smiling!!
