Thank you for all your encouragement, sense of humor and WEALTH of knowledge!!!! I had been experiencing some serious \”burn out\” and felt as though I needed to get out of the field. You were inspiring and helped me look at my teaching methods and where my frustration was really coming from… You will never know just how many people you have inspired, truly. Keep talking….we are listening. And someday….hopefully those making choices for all of us will hear you too. Cheers!!
