I used to be on here most every night. Now kids are raised...I have some minutes at the end of the day. Just read through a few posts.

Pksped Just today, I made the comment that I am surprised each time I assess. I feel like all I do is assess; I wonder when they actually had the chance to learn something. I am an Air Force brat.
