I had a good time at TYCA. My only disappointment was that Morgan Freeman couldn't stay longer, but I'm willing to console myself with the fact that he was able to show up at all.
I'm excited that so many people expressed an interest in blogging. I've become something of a blog crusader, and I hope we can really get an active, viable discussion group going on this blog. Then we won't have to wait a whole year before we hear from people from other schools and other states. We can gossip and trade teaching ideas and laugh at each other's jokes and generally get some personal and professional enjoyment out of knowing each other any day of the week.
Because we've all just come back from TYCA, I think the thing to do is to start out by talking about TYCA. Which sessions did you attend? What did you get the most out of? What do you plan to use from what you learned at the conference?
