workshop update

The students were fantastic yesterday and we managed to get through a ton of material and have about two hours of practice speeches before finishing up. This morning they will have a full practice debate, and then we'll most likely do another one. We end at 2 today just because of travel arrangements.

I have a feeling this is a beginning, not an ending for these students and very soon they will have a debate program. They certainly are talented and will do very well at their first tournament. I hope it's soon!

In other news, I have been named a DCA at the USU Nationals in Vermont in April. I hope I learn something about this whole process from it. I'm excited about it for sure and I'm happy to be working with the other folks on the team, but I hope it doesn't take too much time away from interacting with my students during the tournament.

Well time to head over and start the last day!
