Blogs from Teachers new to World of Warcraft

from Jane Wilde’s class

One woman in my class reports that her daughter's boyfriend... posted a comment about my blog (and me) on reddit and now I have 23 comments on my blog…just thought you’d like to see. Here’s the link to Reddit

"I am actually quite grateful for this firsthand experience as I think it will help me be an empathetic adult and parent."
