Bunki and Carolyn are right. I posted a message before I left using my
school address with much the same tone. I don't remember exactly what I
said...but this list is a treasure of knowledge. As you read, look for
people who have similar philosophies and ideas...Add those people to your
own address books. If you have a problem, look for someone who has had a
similar problem and find how they solved the problem. This list is a
valuable tool to help with lesson planning, discipline concerns, classroom
management and research.
It is important to use this list for professional development and support.
Let us keep it for sharing knowledge (and yes...for patting each other on
the back for our accomplishments). I get the digest, so it is easy for me to
skip mail I do not want to read--I just look at the subject lines and scroll
down (I have that handy little scroll wheel). Sometimes I find myself
laughing at the stuff that does get posted....but do remember that this list
is something that can be taken away. We have Bunki and others to thank for
their efforts to keep it.
I always send my personal notes to the person who sent the original message
as that is really easier for me (otherwise I would be replying to the whole
digest). I always read the personal messages that people send to me first,
too. So....if any of you are frustrated with getting 100 e-mail a
day...Maybe you should try the digest for a day or two. It is much easier to
delete one e-mail if you do not have time for it.
Thanks Bunki and Carolyn for making a point....and my apologies to anyone
who opened who does not agree....Lyris did not like "Delete if you do not
agree" as a first line.....So folks "Delete" now.
