Check out this link to Jeff McGill's Weekly Column from the local newspaper. It is aways a thrill to see ex-students making it in life.I am very proud of Jeff and what he has accomplished.Who would have guessed that this young man (woops old now) who played tricks on me and teased me about my height and didn't do well in Biology would make it and be so successful.Then again, I always knew he would because he had a passion to write(just not that passion for Biology LOL) and he had the drive and determination. Isn't that what it's all about. Drive and determination. I must get Jeff to write my retirement notice in the paper. I have been teaching for 34 years this year and still have a few more left. If you are an ex-student and read my blog would you please drop me a line so I know what you are up to.
I will find the poem both Jeff and I wrote way back in 1985.

You may have noticed I have been quiet lately. The past few weeks I have not had time for me and hence I have not been able to create. I miss this. School has been hectic with reports and assessment tasks to mark and set. I have had some scrapbooking camps and crops to attend and also have had family issues to deal with. Then there has been house work-----yeah right.
My eldest daughter is now in hospital and is 25 weeks pregnant but has mayor complications. She will be in there as long as the doctor decides. Her infection is easing but her blood pressure is still low. The amniotic fluid is still escaping due to the rupture. All the prayers are needed for our little baby to survive. Melanie is OK but it is the baby that needs a miracle. I know it is all in God's hands but if you are able to some prayers would be greatly appreciated. I am doing as much as I can to help them out with the kids. I am over there tonight and there all day tomorrow.
Hopefully life will be back to normal soon and we will all be happy.
