      Erin gave me the KKR link. Very interesting insight there :). And glad you found the online presence link useful as well.

  2. Wow, that Scott Adams article comes just at the right time. Our director here in Skopje has decided the whole school needs to be revamped, and he’s thrown it out at the staff as a challenge. I’m going to pass this on to a friend whose seriously working on this and see if we can figure out how to make the school better without firing the entire English department. Thanks.
