Thanks. We teach it in 9th grade - 14 year olds - so it'll be a lot like herding cats, but it's fun. I hope to move to one of the history classes in a couple of years. The great thing about Geo is that we tie culture into history and physical geography. It makes the kids think in ways they haven't before.

It's a huge loss for the Special Ed kids but at least a few Texans will know where Canada is. :sneaky:

No loss for the kids, really. We have an inclusion model so I'll still see the kids. I just won't be tracking individual grades as closely or doing the tons of paperwork. Sure, I'll lose the small stipend, but I figure I'm coming out ahead on this deal.
