    I'm Shawn, I've been married for what will be 6 years on May 30th. I live in NY with my hubby, 4 kids, and 2 dogs. I taught in the elementary school as a one on one aide for a few years until my student was sent to a residential home. I taught preschool for 7 years and had to leave my school in 2001 when I went on bedrest. I currently am teaching at Gymboree 2 days a week and am home with my 1 year old son the other days. I teach the regular play class, as well as music, and one day a week I teach a class that is preK. It's different, but still allows me to work with children and keeps me involved with teaching so I will not be shellshocked when I return to work full-time at some point.

    HI I am Kim and I am from NJ. I went to college in RI but I like NJ so I moved back home after graduating. I have been teaching kindergarten for two years in a Catholic School. I am currently looking for a job in public school. I am attending graduate school at night for my masters in curriculum and instruction along with special education so I am busy. I love what I do but I will be looking forward to the summer in a few weeks.

    I'm Sharlene from Central Florida. I am about to finish my 8th year teaching (only 4 more days with kids). I have my dream job--Pre-k teacher of special needs kids. I have 12 kids with a full time aide. I've lived in Florida all my life--but I'm not a beach person--I'd much prefer the mountains. I dislike palm trees, heat, and humidity. My family is here, so Florida is home.

    Hi all...
    Nice to put "places" to the screen names I read so often. My name is Sherri and I'm from British Columbia, Canada. Haven't seen many fellow Canucks on the site, but there are always interesting and helpful advice and ideas!! I'm a student teacher and will be certified at this time next year...can't wait to have a class of my own!!
    Looking forward to reading more from you all. Anyone else from the "Great White North"?

    I must say hi from Newfoundland. My name is Dawn and I have taught Kindergarten full-time for the past 2 years and hopefully for many more. I've been teaching for 18 years- 1 at grade 2, 2 at grade 1, and 13 in Special Education from primary resource to grade 12 Basic English(That or be laid off!)and all the way in between. I'm married with a 10 year old and a 13 year old and a little one in Heaven. My husband, brothers, father, mother, uncle and aunt are all teachers(some retired now) so I guess you could say teaching is in my blood.

    I live on Fogo Island, a little island off the Northeast coast of the big island of Newfoundland(accessible only by ferry 5 times a day).I moved here to teach for one year in 1985 but met my husband and the rest is history. Fishing is our main industry although it is in some trouble right now with low cod stocks. We have warm summer weather(about 65-80 degrees F.), lots of icebergs, hiking trails and my husband loves to sea kayak. Last year we met a teacher from Vermont and she stayed with us while kayaking with my husband. I live in a 96 year old fish merchants house with 10 bedrooms and lots of dust!!

    I love this site because it's so nice to talk to other teachers( i'm the only K teacher in my school) and learn about other school and systems.

    I'm Stephanie in Southern California. I'm a college student in an elementary education program and a preschool teacher. Next year will be my senior year and then after a semester of student teaching, I will be an elementary school teacher!! I'm curious ... I'm preparing to teach in a Lutheran School, are there any Lutheran School teachers on here?
