The Middle-L listserv isn't for the faint-hearted. Middle school teachers (like middle school students) come in many shapes, sizes, colors, and personalities -- and they tend to say what's on their minds! Some will get up on their soapboxes. Some will irritate you. (You always have that DELETE key!) But those are some of the things that make Middle-L the always-interesting place that it is. Middle-L moderator Jerry Taylor is the other "always-interesting" element of this list. Even when he's telling off someone, he does it with charm and with wit!
