Are you still out there digging up old bones from 1997, Kent?
Teachersgood ones, at any rateare lifelong learners. If you fail to teach one of your students, you have failed that student as a teacher and you must attempt to modify your strategy. I think this is second nature to those who are born to teach, but in case any have forgotten, the Ministry of Education and Training for the Province of Ontario has placed it in our curriculum documents: "All students are expected to learn."
Best regards, Richard
