Great to have you here! Wait - is you're brother's library really that cool? :)

Since you rock the English thing you might consider joining some of the ELA groups to stay up on resources and discussion.
Popular Music
Teach with the Moving Image
World Literature
American Literature
British Lit (sans Shakespeare)
Making Shakespeare Pop
Poets and Writers
Adolescent Literature
Graphic Novels
New Modern Languages & ELL
Digital Storytelling
and the brand new Making Drama POP! group

At the top of the group there should be an little + sign similar to the one in the International Educators group (image below) that says "+Join Group X." Easy stuff.

Good Vibes,
