I thought I would pass along a little motivation. Really, I’m just trying to avoid grading papers but they are great videos.
This first video I was shown for the first time back when I was considering where I would complete my student teaching. I went to an informational meeting about Aldine ISD and the speaker showed us this video. Apparently the video and subsequent presentation achieved the desired effect considering I am now and Aldine employee. It is a scene from the movie Facing The Giants, also the makers of the most recent movie, Courageous.
This clip I thought was great, aside from the overly emotional music and pop-up video editing job. As a British runner, he embodied the spirit of determination and perseverance in this melodramatically edited video. I love the Olympics and cannot wait to see the U.S. team rock it in London this summer. Seeing them compete at the trials in Houston made me even more of a fan. Go team USA!
And now, a little taste of my marathon training…
