Thank you Tom Drechsler

Thank you Tom Drechsler for a well presented session.


I have been wonderfully busy with my listings, contracts, home inspections, coordinating settlements and even blogging every day.

Today, I took a few hours and attended a continuing education class on Code of Ethics and Predatory Lending. This course was presented by Tom Drechsler Esq. who is such a good instructor. When time permits, I go to any of his classes this one back in 2008. 

Tom has the ability to take a mundane...even boring subject and keep an entire classroom interested. We even kept him a bit over the 3 hour scheduled time, asking more questions.

Many of the agents in this class were there because they wanted to learn from the best...and like me did not need the credits.



One of these special agents kept her hands busy with this doodling while listening to everything, participating and adding to the overall classroom discussion.




                                    Doodlings in class

Rather than tell you about the COE, you can go read them...I thought I would share her classroom doodling. Don't miss the smiley faces.


Thank you Tom Drechsler for a well presented session. We appreciate you and your time!

Sounds like a very successful course.  I enjoyed the doodle. I am a doodler too!  I was wondering what all of these squiggles mean...  Here is to a great class.

It's always such a pleasure to learn from someone who is knowledgable but also makes the class interesting and interactive.

On a separate note I would say that is far more than doodling.

Hi Margaret...some people are born to Teach. I remember the school teachers that made an impression on my life.

That doodle is a piece of art!  I guess some people are born to doodle!

Hi Margaret, Who ever did that doodling has way to much art ability to confine it to that. The rhythm and technique is excellent and I loved all the smiley faces which also speaks volumes about this person's positive attitude. Not bad for a day's class, :-)

Fred, It is a pleasure to watch a real teacher.

Chris, It was fun watching it take shape.

I can't wait to go home and show this to my family! My artistic skills have been vindicated, from when I was 10 years old and the after school art teacher told me I had no sense of color,because I made my multi-colored clown with too many colors for her liking. My mind works way too fast to be able to only sit and listen, I must do something that doesn't need a lot of concentration, so I can focus on that which does require me to be mentally present, lest I let my mind drift off. These classes are what makes WCR so valuable to me and Tom Drechsler brought out some very interesting little known point within the COE that intrigued me greatly. You never know what you might learn when you least expect it ; ) Thank you Margaret!!!
