Hi there, my name is mister Brooks. Welcome to my English class. I am so excited to meet you and can't wait to have you in my class this year. I just wanted to share a little bit about myself so that you can get to know me. Some of my favorite things are my dog, Maggie. Chocolate. And art. My favorite color is blue. When I'm not teaching, some of the things that I like to do are knitting. Cooking. And making music, I play the piano. Of course, I like to read too. Some of my favorite books are never let me go by kazuo ishiguro. 100 years of solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Americana by chimamanda goes the adichie. And The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood. I grew up here in the middle of Florida, but somehow I'm still not used to how hot it gets in the summers. My favorite weather is when it is cloudy and cool. My first language is English. But there are a lot of new languages that I want to learn how to speak. Hola, bonjour. Me home. I'm young as you are. Namaste. Now that you know a little bit about me, I can't wait to find out about you. What sort of things do you like? What are your hobbies? What books do you like to read? I can't wait to find out. I'm looking forward to meeting you and I hope you're excited to learn.
