I have to sit on this for a bit. It has been the first week of teacher training and I thought about writing a few things but I have to phrase this correctly and it takes some thinking. I won't lie - there are ups and downs. At the same time as it is going well, it's still like building a boat in the ocean - you need to start with something firm, some base. We don't have that with any but a few teachers.
I'll get back to you in a day or two after I chew on this a bit more.
