veg guy did you pass subtest II? you sound really capable and i agree with what you said priviously about these tests being the measure of whether we are capable teachers. it really sucks! i have 29 years experience with children and i really love to teach reading, math and the rest too. all hands on! i was a waldorph and montesouri teacher. i raised my children in alternative education because of the numbers and way that education was presented, but now i think that public education is really opening up to the holistic way of educating children, and engaging them in real life education. that is why i appreciate teacher groupie giving us real life examples, this is how it ultimately sticks in the brain!
