Michelle, as I said in my post: don't read yourself into this description If the shoe fits, sorry, but I simply quoted your description of the pro you 'fired' as the basis for what people do not want in a pro teacher, or a partner. I am sure you agree - you made the comment.... and I assume that since you said it it must be accurate to your feelings. And, I said also 'don't read yourself into this description'.... I sincerely brought it up to simply point out that the other 'partner' can see these same things in others. And that the people looking for the 'perfect partner' might need to see that context first. Don't take this personally, but I didn't have you in mind when I commented about this. I just thought your comments about the pro you fired should spark discussion. After all, if the instruction was good, then he was fired because of... looks? Attitude? If the instruction was bad, then go girl.
