Back to Bogies

This is the first of hopefully many new YouTube story videos – it’s a little resolution of mine to branch out, and try a new format…I hope you enjoy it, let me know either way – as it is a big learning process for me! 

In this video I’m talking about my new kindergarten class, and the struggles that have came with it so far!

  1. John, this was a great idea. 🙂 I smiled right along with your story on this video and think you should make many more of these in the future… hum… how will you get your gifs into the video, since you always in the past picked just the right ones for your story… Bravo…. looking forward to vid #2

  2. I have to like it because you said you would cry and it brought out the mother in me- oy…
    Seriously, it did work, and I enjoyed it, and you’re right, it’s a great way to tell a story. You should include a cup of tea or coffee 🙂

    • Wow! Caribbean! That would be awesome, man I wish! I am from a city a couple of hours from Scotland – so it’s an odd accent, I suppose! Really pleased you enjoyed the video…well, understood what I was saying 😉

  3. Loved the vid. Just a question though: when you are teaching these kids English, you are not really opening your eyes that wide when you talk are you? If so, there are going to be some really strange Korean kids out there speaking English. LOL

  4. That was very good. I only just came to your blog and it was a cool intro into your world, this video. I hope you will keep making more of those as they are personal and we get to know you better and you have this cheekiness that I like 🙂
    I will follow you here and on you tube…
    Thanks for stopping by on Evelyn’s blog 🙂

  5. Hi Jhon, I liked the video. Keep the good work up! A small advice: Try to place the camera in front of you and with no movements (but keep your moves!:). Good luck! Best wishes, Ayeh.

  6. You have a fabulous, soothing voice for video. You should do more, it’s enchanting !! But, I would try to anchor the camera/iphone a bit more..the shaking (which I also do, to a fault) is distracting. That should be simple to solve. Good Luck…you are indeed a storyteller ! ☺

    • Firstly thank you very much, how lovely of you to say so 🙂 I thought my voice, accent, or well…anything else may be distracting! But yes, the shakiness – I need to get a tripod or well, anything else I suppose! I shall look into it! 🙂 thanks again!!!

  7. Very cool, John. Although my name is Erika I did not cry but smile and laugh a lot while watching your video. You truly talk like you write… or vice versa. Anyway, I wish you a good progress with your new class!

  8. This is a great idea, but I can’t seem to figure out how to play the video. I’m visually impaired and use a screen reader so am probably missing something. You might want to include a link to where the video can be viewed on YouTube.

  10. I really like your face it looks pretty clean O_O what are your beauty secrets! I love your accent! I like your video too. You are lucky when I was teaching school last year I was pretty pissed because well I came home after 12 hours. Long commute. Long hours. Like from 7.30am to 3.30pm so I am pretty happy I don’t do that job anymore :/ well, interesting video John 🙂

  11. Great video…and because my son will soon be in school this year, this gave me some perspective on what the future teacher would have to go through… I just hope my son is not the crying or the “bogie” type… yikes! He seems like the punching and kicking type though…hehehe…

      • Yeah, I think so too.. He’s not even in school yet but he likes to tag along his backpack and pretend he is going to… I guess pretty soon, I’ll be the one begging for the attention huh? Thanks for sharing! 🙂

  12. Thanks for the giving me vivid images of your students…but the story about the nose sniffling/tasting…that cracked me up (& grossed me out a tiny bit). Keep up the videos… I couldnt stop chuckling the entire time. 🙂

  13. What a great idea! Lovely to have a voice and face to go with your words- previously it was a bearded 50 something man from USA in my head ( don’t ask me why!!!??)
