Hello and welcome back. I just returned from the 2012 Montana Traffic Education Association conference in Billings. What a great event. I had the pleasure to reconnect with other teachers and meet new friends. I always come back from these event recharged and ready to get after it and continue to improve myself as a Teacher.
I would like to acknowledge Rich Hanson, who was a presenter at the conference. What a motivational person and what a talent. I was so impressed with what he had to say and how he said it. One thing that I keep hearing him say was, "If students don't learn the way YOU teach, teach the way THEY can learn".
There was another great activity that we participated in. It was a round table discussion of memorable moments. I am thinking I will focus on some of my most memorable moments and encourage YOU to also submit some of yours to me. I believe this is important so that no one teacher feels like they are on an island. There is a lot of stuff that happens to us, please consider sharing some of yours with me. Send an email to jerry_olson@gfps.k12.mt.us and I will add yours to the blog. Please let me know if you would like to remain anonymous. Thanks and check back soon to read some of my crazier times in the Driver's Education car.

Buckle up
~ Jerry
