    Hi, I was just reading your profile and it said you were a retired elementary teacher.. what grade did you teach? I think that teaching these days is a thankless job for the most part as parents act just as bad as the kids do sometimes. Anyway, I at one time wanted to be an elementary teacher, 3rd grade to be specific. I got sidetracked and the closest I got was homeschooling my daughter for 4 years. She just went back to public school for the first time this year.

    Betty, Thanks so much for getting back with me so quickly. I know I'll be staying in touch! I really appreciate your openness in discussing life choices. I probably asked too much in my post. I'll email next time. : )

    Hope you have a BLESSED weekend!

    Good morning!! I hope you're having a WONDERFUL Friday so far. I've noticed you posting on the Dec 28 - Jan 4 page and wanted to drop by and introduce myself. I'm Andrea, and I've been seriously Sparking for about 6 weeks now. I've lost 12 lbs and I feel GREAT!

    I read through your profile and I think to myself, "That's who I want to be when I retire!"

    My kids are all but grown now and I've gone back to school. I'll get my associates of Science this fall and then it's off to University for my Bachelors/Masters/PhD... I don't know how far I'll go. I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up. Haha! It's a toss up between educator and psychologist. I just know I want to have an affect on future generations somehow.

    Any advice? How did you KNOW you wanted to be a teacher?

    I found your name on the 1 day challenge site and noticed you are a retired school teacher. I am in my 24th year teaching elementary music.

    I also noticed you are traveling.....have a safe trip.
