Question for week 1/28 - 2/3, 2008

Last week went well for me, I would not change anything, there are things I would like to see change but those changes has to be done by administration.

One of the things I really hate is to send an-mail and the person does not reply, whether it is positive or negative. Last week the Career Technology Director for my county was going to meet with Dr. B. he sent me an-email, wanting me to give him some feed -back about NTI. When I saw the an e-mail mentioned NTI I think it was a breath of fresh air, so I sent him an
e-mail trying to get some questions answered. Instead of answering the questions in my
e-mail ,which does not affect myself alone but also the other two NTI teachers in the class. His reply was still trying to get information about NTI.
NTI has been good to me (us) and what I learned is not so much for myself but they are to help my students. Whatever I have learned at NTI I will forever share them with other teachers so they will be able to help their students but not to someone who will use them for selfish gain.
I am not selfish but that is how I feel.
