Parents speaking day

Just finished the paernts evening and told 15 parents the same old story of their kids: They should learn more, they should learn more, they should learn more, heyheyhey! (sounds like a song?). But the day, that begun at 5.15 a.m. is not finished yet. The teachers will have a "nice" evening with dinner afterwards. So i think, it will be the last train back home today.

update: It was not the last train, it was Bernhard who brought me back to my car in Telfs. Now I am back home at 2.15 a.m. We had our xmas-event at the shooting-guild in Mils, where we had the chance to try the shooting sport with air-guns. We tryed shooting at 10 meters on shields of 5 cm diameter. They are divided into 9 rings and in addition the center is marked as 10th ring. So maximum account was 100 rings to shoot. Quite difficult to see those tiny little rings. But I was the winner with 96 rings.
But shooting at the xmas-dinner has some sort of bitter taste.

First Lego League canceled

Unfortunately my boys were some kind of dismotivated in taking part in the FIRST Lego League. One week is missing. From a maximum ammount of 400 points they could only get 135 points with big luck. The presentation of the research was some sort of "null". So 2 of 6 didn't come today to the last briefing. In this case we decided to cancel our taking part in the competition in Schwaz. Unfortunately.

snow is here

When I woke up this morning, I saw little pieces of snow lying on some places. Oh, not the amount of snow that the forecast told. But when the train came nearer to Hall, the snow became more and more. In the five minutes by bike to school I became wet all over. In the meantime here in Obsteig too there lies a lot of snow. Gipsy's feet are too short to walk over the field. She sinks.

My boys failed to install DSL to the HDD. But they liked the live-CD.

Today I told my pupils some facts about Microsoft an Linux and who ports to Linux. They wanted to know more. So I started Knoppix and showed them Runlevel 2 and KDE 3.4.x. Some of them wanted to know more. The next story was about GPL and what that means. Some of them wanted to know more. After Kanotix and DamnSmallLinux two of them (all are 15) wanted to know more about DSL. So I started a download, burned the iso-file and we booted one PC. They wanted to know how to bring this dsl to HDD. I told them but said that if they are not gurus, they should keep fingers away. "Egal, des riskier ma!" (Anyway, we'll take the risk and do it). So they took home an iso of DamnSmallLinux. Wonder what they will tell tomorrow.

Today we had an event at our school: SchuWiDu which means in german: "Schule, Wirtschaft und Du". We had 20 different manufactors her, from "Gartencenter" to "Spengler" to "KFZ-Mechaniker" to "Maskenbilder", "Zimmerer", "Tischler" and so on. Pupils from 3rd and 4th class from 7 schools arround Hall came with their teachers and visited the different jobs. Somtimes there were pupils from the last years, they presented their work, the young pupils could do some handcrafts. So they (hopefully) got an overview over different jobs they could do and maybe the cought a glimpse that doing a handcraft job is not worse than going to school for 4 more years. All in all it was a good event for all. We presented our school and what we do here. In fact, our pupils did this, I didn't say a word. And that was very good and they did a good job.

conference No.1

Today we had our first conference in school after the ones from the beginnig of the school-year from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. Strange, but it was a fast event. No long discussions, no feeling like walking on hot asphalt. Afterwards a beer at the geisterburg. Back home by train and car from Telfs.

Slept well and long

Now I know, how long it lasts from waking up 'til driving away: 5 minutes. Wake up, shock: 6:00 a.m. put on my clothes, make some lunch for the day, no breakfast, put on my shoes, take my school-bag, close the house, start the car: 5 minutes. puh! 8 minutes to the railway-station, one minute too late, but: the train itself was 2 minutes too late, so I got it! What a start in a day, that brought me 9 lessons until 5:05 p.m.

My first girl

After 6 years of teaching in my 7th year I have the first girl in my electro-group. She wants to become something like a technical drawer. Or maybe a "Druckvorstufentechnikerin". Dont't mind what, but I have a girl that is interested in technique. Great!

Biking in Innsbruck

From today on I have a bike at the main train station in Innsbruck, so i can drive through the town whenever I want. I tested it last saturday and found it useful. Tomorrow I will visit my pupils at their jobs with my bike. The locations are spread all over Innsbruck. I'm happily looking forward my bike tour tomorrow.

Train train

Finaly I did it! I bought a one-week-ticket from the vvt, stood up at 5:15 a.m. and got the train at 6:07 in Mötz. Five minutes from the station in Hall to the school by bike. Sure, a bit early, but half an hour half asleep sitting in the train is fine too. Now I'm going to test the way back home.

What I want to become...

Although this is written in english, the fun is reading it in german. The goal was writing down what the pupil wants to become. Here are some answers: "Begaxel, Visioderabeutin, Selbssdentig". Any questions?

school begins

On monday I had my first day, but since there we only counted the pupils, I hardly can count the day. Today I had my first four lessons: Physics and Chemistry, Technical drawing, Elektronic and "How to work with the tools". The pupils were surprised, also because in the 3rd lesson I gave them the first test. :-)
More than 121 pupils means 5 classes. But as pupils come and go from other schools in the first weeks so I can tell exact on Oct. 1st.
