I wasn’t Genki to say the least this morning. The bad weather didn’t help. Yesterday’s kindergarten teacher kindly gave me a lift to the station and after a gorgeous gingerbread Starbucks I got on the 5 hour Shinkansen to Okayama. I didn’t feel like working (just looking at the computer screen made my eyes water) so just enjoyed the ride. I got to Okayama at 4, had a bit of a sleep and then in the evening went out for a meal with some of the teachers from tomorrow to discuss the plans. Actually, I don’t think I’ve paid for a meal all week! The teachers were all really cool, but it was so strange not drinking. I just hope my voice holds out for tomorrow!!!

Hello, I'm Richard Graham. And when I was a kid I found school to be sooooo boring... So I transformed my way of teaching. I listened to what the kids were really wanting to say and taught it in ways they really wanted to learn. The results were magical. So I'm sharing it all with you now...
