If you follow me on Twitter then you know I have been taking a continuing education class this week.
Effective Teacher Training to be exact.
I will admit that I was not looking forward to it.

I have not told them of the changes.
But I am quite certain they are aware of them.
They have to be.
I just wish I had been given this information 13 years ago.
