DNC Speeches

I though Obama was very good.  Both Clintons were impressive.  Joe Biden was good, but if we are honest, Beau Biden was better.  Schweitzer was outstanding.  

I can't imagine the Republicans coming close to matching the emotion and excitement of this past week in Denver.

Over the last week, four or five of my students have told me that they are enjoying my class, feel like they are learning, and are having a lot of fun.  They have done this in different ways, but it seems the feeling was strong enough that they wanted to express it to me.  It feels good to be validated in this way.  It is basically why one becomes an educator.
