slightly discombobulated. But the good news? Las Vegas trip was surprisingly satisfying. 3 new colleagues on the trip were v. fun to get to know. One said to me last night, "This was like going from 0 to 60." Also cheering was getting to hang out with the old crew. We even learned a few new tricks to pack up our sleeves. School Improvement Recommendation of the day: Faculties should travel together to Las Vegas annually. That place is a bonding place.
