    1. Wonderful! Thank you for the comment as sometimes I doubt anyone even reads some of my posts and I have spent a lot of time on some of them. You website looks great and I like the posts on non-teaching jobs that require a teaching degree and preventing teacher burnout. I don’t think a lot of people realize how much encouragement can help some teachers and often the lack of the support they have and how heavy the workload can be. Teachers are the best!
