    I have never heard of this program, also, and would love to
    learn more. I've worked as a substitute and now as a para, and
    am trying to learn more about teaching positions. There seems
    to be some kind of informational black-out; as no one knows
    anything about teacher support groups, when meetings for any
    groups take place, or how to learn more. So, lets cut to the
    chase already.
