School has kept me pretty busy. We still go the same number of hours as before, but we have a new instructor for this CCNA 2 class. The instructor is a civilian and there is a huge difference between her and the sergeant we had for the last two classes. The sergeant actually knew his stuff and he was a pretty cool guy, but he just didn't teach very well. I knew he was trying, but there is a huge difference between a teacher and a sergeant who has no instructional training. The civilian teacher tries to involve everyone in the subject and keeps us busy almost the entire time. We are busy during school times and we are kept busy with a lot of homework to do during study hall. We did homework and the Cisco assessments before, but this teacher goes over each of the questions the next day with the entire class. She will actually call people up who missed certain questions on the Cisco assessments and try and make sure they know why they missed the question. Before we did a lot of homework, but it was never checked and we didn't even know if the answers we did were correct or not. So the new class may be a bit tougher, but I think everyone will get a lot more out of it. 


It rained after classes today and let me tell you that after it rains in Georgia in the summer it feels like a sauna. It was so hot and muggy while we stood in formation. I've never experienced anything like that before.

I can empathize with you. I have grown up in Florida. I will be dealing with that about the same time next year for 25S.
