Intern Progress Report, Week… Uh… It’s March?!

I know they say that no news is good news, and while I can think of a lot of examples to the contrary, in this case that seems to be true. It’s the start of Week #8 for me, and things are chugging along nicely. In the last few weeks I’ve picked up a bunch of new skills, and now that Eric has left (*waves goodbye…belatedly*) to journey the seven seas, I’ve been handed a lot more responsibility around the office, which makes me feel pretty important!

We’ve been really busy around here, too! Among the several Secret Projects that I’m not allowed to mention (yet), there’s one big thing I can share. As you might know, we’re getting really excited about the ABTA Master Point Press Teacher of the Year Award! People from all over North America have been sending in nominations for their favorite bridge teachers, so now I’ve got two large boxes full of letters from students who love their teachers beside my desk. Nominations close next Thursday, but I’m warning you: send in any more letters and I’ll have enough to build a fort with.

Anyway, the fruits of all these labours have resulted in The ABTA MPP Teacher of the Year Award FACEBOOK PAGE, of which you can (and should) become a Fan. You will be keeping some fine company if you do. Sally and Luise and I are all fans, why aren’t you?

Most importantly, you should check out the photo album of Teacher Nominees. Some teachers, or their student sponsors, have sent us in some especially heartwarming pictures. And by heartwarming, I mean you have to see Charleston, SC’s Tina Radding, and her amazing teaching props. I won’t spoil it, you have to see it for yourself.

If your teacher isn’t a nominee, maybe you can weigh in on which photo is your favourite. In the office right now, there is some contention on this subject… but I know who Linda is backing….

With any luck, I’ll soon be able to tell you more about what sort of other Spring Hijinks MPP has in store… but for now, I’ve gotta get back to the grindstone!
