This week I would like you to use your imagination. You have just won the lottery and will leave your teaching post immediately to travel around the world. As you leave your keys you meet your replacement. You are asked to give this new teacher just ONE piece of advice. What would that be, and why? Enjoy your world expedition!

Thanks to all of you...WE DID IT....

Good Evening NTI Family:
I am truly going to miss all of you and hope that we'll continue to blog each other. It is amazing that we can share our views and vent about lifes' disappointments and the journeys that we must go through, all of which are lessons to make us stronger and build character. Speaking of journeys, I'm still on one to find a job. Since I know time is ticking away and hiring is currently in progress, please remember me if you hear of any jobs in Video Broadcast or Business Ed at your school. I'm really tired of being a Stellar sub and would like to know where I'll be working next year. However I will continue pursuing my education in the Fall and begin working on my Masters program. I believe I'll do an online program through Walden which I won't have to take the GRE to get in. I am not a good test taker.

On another note, I just want to say "thanks" to everyone for a great class. The experiences we've shared will never be forgotten. As always, I want to "THANK" Ms. Hayden and Dr. B for their professionalism, great teaching expertise, and all that they have instilled in me. I'm glad that I was able to complete NTI and gain the knowledge to succed as a teacher. I especially liked that personality test we took this summer. You ladies are AWESOME and I feel priviledged to have been under your guidance and direction. May your next journey in life be peaceful and rewarding. Looking forward to a relaxing summer...

Never Give Up!
