Almost There

Week three is in the books and week 4 is about to begin.  Yeah, it was tough.  A lot of written assignments were due on top of the grueling demands of having to write comprehensive lesson plans pre-teaching and difficult self-evaluations afterwards.  Having to deal with critiques, failing, resubmissions... a lot of my peers had a hard time handling it.  I heard quiet sobbing in the computer room.  More tears in the cantina.  It was a tough week.

  2. Amazing! Utterly amazing! :) Blessings, Lynn
