I'm 99% certain that NBC is playing a big joke, and these web episodes are a tie in for the upcoming Funny People movie. Anyway, it still looks interesting. When you mix the banality of The Office with the wholesomeness of Welcome Back, Kotter you get Yo Teach!
Samuel L. Jackson cameos as the principal and Mark Taylor Jackson plays the wise cracking, yet subtly ironic teacher, Mr. Bradford.

Finally, someone has put together a list of Singapore restaurants that don't serve free water. Don't go to these places.
By the way, I find it almost inexcusable that spicy Thai restaurants are on the list. How can you torture your customers without offering at least a little relief?

I just finished my first year of teaching P.E. If you knew me a few years ago, I'd be the last person that you would chose to teach P.E. However, my director had different ideas.
I explained to him, " I just don't have a 'love of the game' like most P.E. teachers." He responded, "You know the rules and can teach them. You might not be a coach, but you can be a P.E. teacher."
He was right. This last year, I've managed to get students to play baseball, rugby, basketball, floor hockey, American football, soccer, badminton, volleyball, kickball, handball, and dodgeball... lots of dodgeball. I've had a lot of fun too.
I have one student in both English and P.E.; I took a snapshot of his doodle a few months ago.
The picture is evidence that things didn't always go perfectly, but I feel like I've done a pretty good job; and if I had a chance to do it again, it would be even better.
