The task of the excellent teacher is to stimulate
 "apparently ordinary" people to unusual effort. The tough problem is not in identifying winners: it is in making winners out of ordinary people. ~K. Patricia Cross


May all my friends in the teaching profession have a wonderful start to the new year!

The two of you are the closest thing to being twins and there is nothing better in life than that! I would love to be going with you two if you didn't live so far away. Twin and I alway have so much fun when we're together. We do nothing but laugh the whole time. Life just doesn't get any better than that. Have a great time and post your treasures!
