Genuinely, the best thing I have ever done. Hi, my name is Emily Craven and I am a QUT graduate in Education and I now teach full time at Spinifex State College in Mount Isa.

    Blark vs. Son’s Teacher – Blark and Son

    (upbeat music) – Sorry I’m late, Dad. The class stayed after to hang with Mr. Beal. – That’s the third time this week, son. More like Mr. Steals, your kid.
