Today, 2KM and 2KJ were lucky enough to skype with their blogging buddy, Mr Avery!
Mr Avery teaches 4th grade in Massachusetts, USA. He has a wonderful blog and 2KM and 2KJ has enjoyed getting to know Mr Avery’s class this year.
Unfortunately 2KM and 2KJ can’t skype with Mr Avery’s class because when we start school at 9am it already 7pm in Massachusetts! Fortunately, Mr Avery was nice enough to give up 30 minutes of his evening to skype with us!
When we called Mr Avery, it was 10am Tuesday in Leopold and 8pm Monday in Massachusetts. Mr Avery was just preparing for his last day of the school year as it is nearly time for the summer holidays in the northern hemisphere.
Lots of students in 2KM and 2KJ prepared excellent questions for Mr Avery. They tried to think of open questions rather than closed questions with a yes/no answer.
Here are some of the things we found out about Mr Avery:
- He will be teaching maths and science in 6th grade next year.
- Mr Avery enjoys playing golf, drawing, reading and running.
- He has not been outside of the USA, except for Canada, but he has been to lots of different states in the USA.
- Mr Avery can speak a little Spanish.
- He loves to teach maths and make movies about maths with his students.
- Mr Avery’s favourite book is Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.
- He would love to come to Australia one day!
