I used to post a lot at the student teacher's board at teachers.net and noticed that the postings were always cyclic in nature.
Student teachers and novice teachers posted at the beginning of the year in September. They also posted in January, at the beginning of the semester. As they gained experience they left the student teacher board and either began posting in other parts of t.net or they stopped visiting the site altogether.
I wonder if teacher focus will be the same? The student teachers and novice teachers will "grow up" and (sniff-sniff) leave us. But if we wait long enough, a new "group" will come through our cyber-doors and we'll be busy once again.
Ah well ... for me the quiet time has been a boon. I've started spending more time in other forums.
P.S. Errr ... this is not to say that I don't appreciate your initiative. I do! Thanks for starting a new thread. (GRIN)
