Elizabeth Thanks, CB, I forwarded that to him. He is doing a lot, but this whole networking thing has been hard for him too. He sees it as being a PITA (Pain in the ---), but he IS trying. We did buy business cards from vistaprint. We also worked up a "thank you" sheet that he would fill out at the end of the subbing day to advise the teacher who was out wha...See More
