Okay, so the fact that I spent time today reading the Richardson book probably means that I didn't really spend time away from Global Learners, but I did spend a bit of time playing on my new unicycle (yes, I said "unicycle"... got it for $10... go craigslist!), so does that count as a break?
At any rate, I really think that the Global Learners training was some of the best I've received as a teacher... only my ropes course instructor training (several years back) and my IB trainings have come close. It's nice to honestly be able to say "YES! I can't wait to get back and start using this stuff!"
Thank you, everyone, for such an amazing three days. I still need the weekend to absorb and sort it all out, but now that I'm on broadband at home, I'm sure I'll be seeing many of you on Skype soon!
