This much I know about…Awesome

I have been a teacher for 26 years, a Headteacher for 11 years and, at the age of 50, this much I know about Awesome.

Awesome. It’s a word you hear a great deal when you are in the USA. Yesterday morning I watched the sunrise in Washington DC on mid-term Election Day standing where Martin Luther King delivered his I Have A Dream speech…


…Abraham Lincoln was staring over my shoulder…


OED: Extremely impressive or daunting; inspiring great admiration, apprehension, or fear. Awesome.
