En gåde til jer ... A riddle for y´all

Hvad har disse ting til fælles?
What do these things have in common?












Hvis du sagde "Kelli fik et job hos Herning Gymnasium"... DU ER RIGTIG!

If you said, "Kelli got a job at Herning Gymnasium"... YOU ARE RIGHT!


Jeg fik et fultidsjob tilbud fra dem i fredags som de vil gerne have en International Baccalaurete Diploma Programme i deres skole.....og de har spurgt mig for at være deres I.B. Coordinator! Lige nu, imens jeg skriver vores meget stor ansøgning til I.B.O, vil jeg lære to engelske klasse for at lave mit skema fuldtids. Efter vi modtager I.B.s godkendelse, bliver jeg en fuldtids coordinator af programet. Under min sidste seks år i den Texas skolesystem, arbejdede med I.B. så det er en program jeg kender så godt og at jeg tror på!


I received a full-time job offer from Herning Gymnasium (read this link so you know what I gymnasium is... it is not a fitness center! lol)on Friday as they would like to offer International Baccalaurete Diploma Programme in their school....and they asked me to be their IB Coordinator! For now, while I am writing our very large application to I.B.O., I will teach two classes of English so that I have a full time schedule. After we receive I.B´s approval, I will become a full time coordinator of the program. During my last six years in the Texas school system, I worked with I.B., so it is a program that I know well and in which I believe!

Jeg begyndte I DAG som IB Coordinator, og vil begynde min undervisning klasse den 5. januar. Oh, og havde jeg fortalt dig.....Herning Gymnasium er 3.5km fra mit hus?! Jeg er "tilbage i sadelen igen!" Og det føler rigtigt godt!

I began TODAY as the IB Coordinator, and will begin my English classes January 5th. Oh, and have I mentioned..... Herning Gynmasium is 3.5km from my house?! I am "back in the saddle again!" Og it feels great!

Tillykke med det nye job :-)

ps. Next time your daughter visits and she bring you a suitcase of stuff it would be ok if she brings stuff in the other direction too ;-)

And I now see that you are starting to mix up your English and Danish with that last sentence. :-) Peter does it all the time.

It's a looong time ago, but as far as I remember, I graduated in 1992. I was in 3z. :)

I went to their homepage and can see two of my favourite teachers are still there:
Annette Koldkjær Højlund (who insisted that we speak "ty-de-ligt og ar-ti-ku-le-ret and who'd stamp our written assignments with a red skull-stamp for inexcusable grammar mistakes)

and

Jens Ole Skovgaard Sørensen (who would SHOUT out his lessons and whack inattentive students over the head with his pointer)
