Randy. questions are good They provide food for thought. Connecting is a big issue for me as a teacher as i work in an area ( not kent)where students and the community actively resist engaging in thelearning process. I've been teaching 21 years and it's getting worse. I would like to know how you and others or what you and others are doing to connect.
