This week I would like you to use your imagination. You have just won the lottery and will leave your teaching post immediately to travel around the world. As you leave your keys you meet your replacement. You are asked to give this new teacher just ONE piece of advice. What would that be, and why? Enjoy your world expedition!

Blog Post - Week 7
This past week in my own teaching I felt a little disconnected which prompts my question to you, "What was the moment (or moments) when I felt most disconnected or disengaged as a teacher - the moment(s) I said to myself, I'm just going through the motions here?"

I guess some of this is coach proof or Sly proof...

Hey everyone I have learned a lot from reading your posts and have enjoyed the writing skills exemplified by everyone. We truly have a talented class and it shows daily. The only problem I have is I write a comment on your posts and then they seem to get lost in that big cyber space garbage can in the sky. I have commented on 4-5 blogs in the past and none of them seem to show up. So first it was the elluminate microphone, then I could not even get on the blog and now I can't seem to master the art of commenting to all of your blogs. So props to you bloggers and I apologize for not commenting (even though I have tried like a good little Sly) on your blogs because they are awesome and thank you for commenting on mine as well. That also appears to be a run on sentence. Today I was at the College Football Recruiting Expo in Cobb, so I might be a little punchy right now....peace and I will blog with you all tomorrow!

It has been awesome being in class with you. You having computer problems is nothing compared to if you ask me to put the Sam linebacker in the proper position. I always get confused what side is Sam and what side is Luke. I am using the right names right? I don't know. I always get confused when it comes to this coaching thing. See how easy it is when somebody is not in their element. Imagine if us technology people had to use football terminology to pass this class. We would be in a whole lot worse shape and we would be begging you every day to help us figure it out.
