Life always begins somewhere. My professional life pretty began here at KMS. Although I was leaning towards being in a high school English classroom, a student teaching position opened up here in a middle school, and I grabbed it. My thinking was get my student teaching assignment covering grades 7-12 under my belt, and I could go any place. It was an enlightening 8 weeks. I worked with two seventh grades and one ninth grade advanced English class. It was fun. I learned a lot that you never discover in all those 'methods of teaching' textbooks. Oh ya, I almost forgot. I met a beautiful blonde in this building that I have been with ever since. What do they say? Life moves in mysterious ways. Mine has.
