When I taught English, the AP course was the object of our department's envy. We had one junior-level and one senior-level course, and pretty much the rest of us from grades 7 through 10 were just waiting for our shot. But our wonderful colleagues who were teaching them were so good that we never got to squeeze in. :)

I loooooove office supplies. I got a thrill when I saw your answer to #3. The bad thing about everything going online is I miss seeing those little bottles of White Out.

Laughing a lot is a wonderful perk of teaching.
When small, my favorite game was "teacher". Mom got me a typewriter when I was ten, then writer became the in thing.

I wish more people laughed a lot at work. It's worth as much as money sometimes.

Gal: I have white-out in my desk. It's at least 8 years old. And I do use it sometimes! :)
