I Know I'm Losing You

1. Have you ever still been in a relationship that you knew was ending, but you hung in with it anyway? If yes, why? yes... because there is so much potential, it could be something great if only

2. Tell why people around the world should be completely enthralled by you. one of my at-risk students said something in class this week that I'm going to use as my answer: he told me that I am his all-time favorite teacher because I am the only teacher that accepts him for who he is.

3. Other than where you live, what's your favorite city and why? I loved Paris but I'm going to choose Cork, Ireland.

4. What is something you are really passionate about? education

5. What has been your most exciting prize that you've won? I won a pie raffle for a homemade mixed berry pie with a lattice top. I shared it with my colleagues and we loved and raved about it

6. Do you think there was there a second gunman behind the grassy knoll? no

7. What was the silliest, most fun, crazy or impractical gift that you received? a bejeweled coin purse in the shape of a dog, I use it for my laundry quarters

8. What was the most practical gift that you received? a car starter

9. What blogger has been in your blogroll the longest? How did you discover them? whoever it is has been there since 2006, when I started my blog. I really can't remember.

I loved Cork! My mother's family is from nearby Skibbereen and I visited (and hitchhiked) all over Cork and that part of the country. Love your teacher answer. : )

I just cried. Thanks. What a great kid. Tell him, if the occasion arises, that I agree with you!

Promise me you'll return to Ireland. Your love affair with that country is ongoing and infectious!

I am Harriet said...

What a cool thing for that student to say. I bet that made it all worth while for you.

Enjoy the rest of your Saturday!

I gave Kathy a car starter last Christmas. Then her dad died and she bought a 2012 Ford Focus...with a new car started. This year a bought her a ring...
