Aggravation

Understand that I have taught at the college level, and for Elderhostel. I have also been a trainer for in-service programs in the military and law enforcement. I have absolutely no problem with people who don’t know what I know, but have no interest in dealing with people who refuse to learn.

A member of my family is a special education educator, and I used ARC workers in California, as well as volunteering for a group that assisted people with brain injuries, so I’m well aware of the difference between being unable to learn, or learning at a very slow pace, and those who refuse to learn.

I have always stressed that the only stupid question is the one that doesn’t get asked. If you don’t understand something, let someone know. People learn in different ways and a good teacher will be able to figure out how to explain it to you.

Yukon Quest Day 3

Yukon Quest Map

Sled DogOut of Pelly Crossing the order is William Kleedehn (12), Hugh Neff (23), Hans Gatt (16), and Brent Sass (13). Only Becca Moore (22) is still in Carmacks.
[She left at 11:37PST, so Carmacks is clear.]

Kleedehn injured his back just before the race, but that doesn’t seem to be affecting the team. The climbs are coming up, so things will slow down – a lot.
