With 2015 just a few hours away, and having met a (running) goal I set myself in September this afternoon, I thought I’d set myself some goals for the coming year. Equally, I had in mind to contribute to/’join in’ with two initiatives designed to encourage those in education – #nurture1415 and #teacher5aday. 2014 has […]

It’s that time of year when people look back on the last 365/6 days and look forward to the next year. And at the end of 2012 I wanted to acknowledge the achievements of the last year as much to say ‘you were right’ to those who encouraged me when I was despairing as a celebration […]
Thank you for reading ¡Vámonos! in 2012. Wishing you all the above and more in 2013. Lisa xx
This is the sort of teacher I aim to be. http://lisibo.co.uk/wp-admin/edit.php I want to be remembered. Not with cuddly teddy bears and keyrings (although they’re lovely!) And I want to be the teacher who leads her pupils to that ‘true delight’.

When I checked my counter this morning, it read 29,927. That set me wondering if I could possibly reach 30,000 by midnight to end the year off on a ’round number’! I tweeted at one o’clock- and then again (after prompting for a URL!) at 2 o’clock by which time I’d had another 30 hits! […]
Earlier today on Yahoo MFL Resources, Jane shared a Powerpoint presentation under the subject – Helping pupils be nice? So I decided to do just that! I’ve made a couple of alterations and made it into an Animoto video by saving the slides as .jpg files, uploading them to Animoto as images, choosing some suitable […]
¡Vámonos! hit another milestone at some time between 10am and 2pm when it received its 25,000th hit. That is to say, my blog has been accessed more than 25,000 times- my previous counter mysteriously disappeared and, as I had no idea exactly how many hits I’d had when it went, I reset it to the […]
Just back from 11 days in Switzerland. Had a great time with my family exploring and investigating, and have to say that I am missing the mountains and lakes already. Absolutely stunning! My photos don’t really do justice to the beauty of Interlaken and the surrounding area but here are a few of my favourites.
