 ;-) My kind of teacher!!!! I always tell my student-teachers "ya have
to master the glare and the body posture"! They understand after they
have taught for a couple of weeks. It just clicks in! Also, the voice!

eyes roam constantly over the room and the other student's question is
answered. Debby
