As a public school teacher we are placed under a lot of pressure to provide an education for our students, and rightly so.  That is why I choose that career and have persevered doing it for over a decade.  Unfortunately it gets tougher every year to stay with it.  Do not get me wrong, I …

Karen saw this the other day and could not wait until I got home to show it to me.  It has to be the funniest thing that I have seen in a while.  Who ever design this commerical needs to make more of them, because they did an excellent job. It is very unique for a …
