Fairly frequently (once every year or so) the college puts on a "great teachers seminar" weekend where teachers go and share ideas/problems/solutions/techniques. I went this year, and I certainly feel like a learned a lot, even if most of that was along the lines of "you're not alone!!!".
Some of my fave teachers and I went for a hike around Lake Arrowhead, here Astroboy, Fractalady (my roomie) and I return to the conference center after a lengthy discussion on hexagons (yes, really). I bet you can tell what they teach!
I also learned that manzanita trees are great for climbing. I'm feeling an "Eloise" moment here.
