Awwww living and teaching in the Virgin Islands sounds ah-mazing! I know my hubby would never go for it, unfortunately! I don't know if I'll ever get him to move out of his hometown, or even the state, let along the continental states! He's very close to his friends and family.
It really does sound like an amazing experience though, I am definitely envious!
Wernerette, if you two are interested, we always need teachers here! The gov't is in a financial crisis right now and isn't hiring, but in a year or two they'll need more teachers - so keep that in mind when the two of you graduate! I've loved my 25 years - gorgeous weather (other than hurricanes every so often) and freedom to do a lot of different things in the classroom - I've been doing mosaic murals with my classes, though last year we studied medieval and Renaissance art and symbols, and created our own banners, T shirts, and flags, and then staged a march around school and a footrace in the bus circle - it was crazy and fun!!!! (Kinds learned all about theme and variations, geometric designs, color theory, as well as the art history and social studies aspect of it. Oh, and of course fabric design, too.)

Phebess, my husband is going to school to be a teacher, high school history. He's a senior but he'll have to do one more year for a few classes he needs and student teaching. I have taken a few grad classes towards elementary education as well, and someday when hubby finishes, I'll get back into it and hopefully be a teacher as well.
I've been on spark for a while now but only just stumbled on this team! I have always loved fashion and I love to see it combined here with a weight loss environment, because as I lose weight, I'm definitely finding myself more and more into fashion and dressing up and looking good. I was definitely a frump-a-lump at my heaviest. Now, I'm wearing more fitted and flattering clothes, following trends that I used to never consider, and find myself getting more and more excited about fashion. Looks like I've found a great team!
