    Plus, can you please teach me to organize my thoughts and write?  I can write technical stuff if I know my audience.  But persuasive writing is impossible; I just look at what is in my head and think "Duh!".  NOT helpful.  I just learned I do this verbally; just jump into the middle of some ideas.

    I had a somewhat abusive English teacher in HS in rural Florida, but I placed out of English in college.  It makes me crazy when people use 'less' when what they mean is 'fewer' or use 'that' when they should use 'who', but those 'errors' are pretty common these days, and from highly educated people.

    Rant off, but you should take some time to decompress and "once more into the breach" if you can.  I volunteer in middle school (not an educator), and the last two years were pretty tough.  But I did make a difference with some kids, so I just concentrate on that.  I am sure it helps that as a volunteer, I have little accountability!

    ...Son, those Elephants always look out for themselves. If you happen to get a crumb or two from their policies, it's a complete coincidence. -Malharden's Dad
