So nice you could make it! (:
You know the child we discussed at our dinner meeting? His mother sent an email to our director retracting her permission for us to videotape him and show the tapes to Child Find. It was a very legalistic, impersonal letter. So our director finally told her that she would "help her find another school". We did all we could. It's very sad. The boy needed a team united to help him, but the Mom was not able to participate.
It would be good to get a discussion going about this kind of thing.
As a fellow adjunct faculty member and co-founder of an organization committed to the improvement of teaching at the college/university level, I thought I'd introduce myself and send along our website address:
Our programs offer adjunct faculty a choice to complete only an instructional component designed to make them better teachers, or to also complete a testing component and receive certification as a Certified Adjunct Faculty Educator (C.A.F.E.)
Check us out! Best wishes for continued success in your teaching endeavors.
