At times I believe I am more like my students than I care to admit. I know I become apathetic when I am overwhelmed and I know I am distracted by bright and shiny things. So, when a presenter comes forth and tells us he is to present to us about law or text, I get restless just thinking about it.
However, Frank Lomonte was able to keep me pleasantly entertained as he discussed the importance on student law issues. And Tracy Collins held me with is expertly designed Keynote presentation, not to mention the doughnuts.
I realize that someone could give the directions on living forever, but if it wasn't presented in fashion for me to understand, I would miss it. I know we fall into the trap of trying to entertain our students too much, but a little excitement makes it fun for all.
