I prefer to think that what I do is not transferrable to tape! I talk
way too fast, make way too many turns in the conversation, and laugh one
hell of a lot. I know it, the kids know it, and believe me the parents
know it. There is no reason that "America's funniest videos" needs to
know it. Seriously, though, I think that after teaching upteen years, I
realize that teaching is one part personality, one part technique, and
two parts magic. Why spoil that by defining it any more?
