Hillary stumped by school kids

I received this cute email from a former college roomie. It was quite “hillary”ous. Ha ha.

Hillary Clinton goes to a primary school in New York to talk about the
world. After her talk she offers a question time.

One little boy puts up his hand. The Senator asks him what his name is.

“Kenneth.”

“And what is your question, Kenneth?”

“I have three questions: First – whatever happened to the medical health
care plan you were paid to develop during your husband’s eight years in
the office as President? Second – why would you run for President after
your husband shamed the office? Third – whatever happened to all those
things you took when you left the White House?”

Just then the bell rings for recess. Hillary Clinton informs the kids
that they will continue after recess.

When they resume, Hillary says, “Okay, where were we? Oh, that’s right,
question time. Who has a question?”

A different little boy puts his hand up. Hillary points him out and asks
him what his name is.

“Larry.”

“And what is your question, Larry?”

“I have five questions: First – whatever happened to the medical health
care plan you were paid to develop during your husband’s eight years in
the office as President? Second – why would you run for President after
your husband shamed the office? Third – whatever happened to all those
things you took when you left the White House? Fourth – why did the
recess bell go off 20 minutes early? Fifth – what happened to Kenneth?”

Traitor?

So I was a teacher at a “Reading First” school where we were told what to teach, how to teach, what to use to teach, and when the admins came in at 9:17 I better be 17 minutes into my lesson- teacher’s edition in hand, standing in the front, with a direct teaching approach going on. Life isn’t scripted and neither is teaching on most days! It was awful, we hated our reading program, and it made us all angry and hostile when admins even suggested we get together to discuss what we were doing wrong!!

Well, now I’m going to work for this once awful reading program that we all despised so much. Can I just say what an amazing turn around? I get to use my anger, frustration, and personal classroom experience to help train other classroom teachers how use the program more successfully. Who would have thought that something good could come from something bad? I am really excited to say I am a Harcourt rep going into schools to help ease the burden of teaching Trophies, the basal reading program, to others who are going through what I went through. So I just have to wonder if I am a traitor for hating it so much and now working for the same company that made my life so miserable? It’s not the program but the delivery and unrealistic expectations that really had us steamed up I now know. None-the-less, I still have freedom to stay home with little Mikey and pick the days and hours I want to be a presenter. And that’s a good thing =o)

This is dedicated to the one I love

So I told my hubby I wanted a blog and what does he do??? Stays up late every night this week researching and setting me up a blog.  He’s so incredible.  I love him a lot.  I just want a simple webpage where I can post pictures and recipes and a few favorite sites and write a little bit about life’s happenings on a blog.  We’ll see how this goes.  It sounds so trendy- “Yeah, I have a blog on my website!”�
