I feel inspired! I am a band director on Guam. I am not sure how the time difference will allow my students to SKYPE with others; however, like I said, I am inspired to try. Perhaps I can use Skype to deal with bullying or other character education concepts in my "character ed" class that meets first thing in the morning. Nevertheless, I am willing to try...babysteps!
