I'm an absolute newbie here but have lurked for the past few months. Even I, as a total new person have found you so informative and you have taught me heaps so thank you so much for that.

Good luck with your teaching and congratulations on the grant. What a thrill to be able to do something you have dreamed of for so long.

Congratulations Debi!! I'm still paying for my teaching credential. I was just laid off this last June from teaching 1st grade for 8 years! Teaching jobs are hard to come by where I live. Hopefully things will change soon. icon_smile.gif I love teaching and miss having my classroom. It is soooooooo rewarding and I would not trade it for anything. Just by reading all your posts, I can tell you will be an awesome teacher! Blessings to you and your new endeavor!!! icon_smile.gif Bethany icon_smile.gif

Wow, debi that was a shock! But I'm so happy that you have a grant and can move on to something just as needed in the community a teacher. Congrats on the job and your new adventure, I've heard you voice in my head many a time since coming here and hope to continue *beaming*
Good luck.

Good luck to you in this new chapter of your work. You're sure to touch as many lives teaching as you have here.

Glad to hear you're sticking around for at least a little while...

Debi,
Just a point of interest for you...we live very near (about a half hour drive) from the Harriet Tubman home in Auburn, NY. We have seen it many times.
Perhaps in your new life you will be able to visit there.
Its a very humble little white house, and a hugely humbling experience to visit there.

foodguy, I was born and raised in/near a little one-intersection town called Fountain City, IN, where the Levi Coffin house is located. It's a pretty awesome place, considered quite large for a house of it's time.

For those who don't know, Levi Coffin was considered the Grand Master Conductor on the Underground Railroad, and his home was called the Grand Central Station on the Railroad. It is said that every slave that passed thru the Coffin house, made it to freedom. There is a well inside the house (something that was just never heard of in those times) so the neighbors couldn't see how much water they were using, which would give them a clue to the number of people in the house at any given time.

(sorry for the history lesson interjection .... we now return to our regularly scheduled programming! icon_rolleyes.gif )

Debi, My maternal grandparents owned a house on the banks of the Hudson River in Fort Edward, NY. There are signs that their house was used in the Underground Railroad, on the way to Montreal.

Debi,

Congratulation, it is never late to follow a dream. You will be a wonderful teacher, just as you are here for us CC-ers. I am happy for you.
