I am back! I have been away for a while, although I have been stopping in periodically to see how you guys were doing. I am a teacher living in Japan and this site has made my life so much easier. Although I am being pulled in many different directions right now, I thought it necessary to make a renewed effort to give something back to this community and all you wonderful Teachers!
