note to self

Back in August, on the last day of our Teaching Fellows Training, our instructor gave us each a post card and asked us to address it to ourselves and write ourselves a note, and that she'd mail the cards in October. I got mine yesterday. Here's what I wrote to myself: "Remember that you have a gift for the kids. They might not be ready for it. Wait for them."

Ms. Plesh, I'm sure am hoping to god that you remember, since I did have you last year. 5th hour, remember?

I have Mrs. Couivillion this year and she told my class about your blog, and I was ecstatic to hear that you had one. I have a blog here on blogger, but I havn't updated it in two years, so it's not exactly a good read. I have one at livejournal. It's here.I hope I wrote the html right. I never do.

I think I might blog here again on blogger. Maybe it can be my uber big secret blog, but you can read it.

I was sitting in 6th hour today, that's Multimedia Productions, and I was reading your blog when I was supposed to be typing up a script. Hah, I'm lazy. But, anyway, I was reading and well, wow. You are an extremely brave soul for going over to New Orleans. I mean, I had no idea...all of your posts...it sounds like absolute chaos. But, from your posts, it sounds like that you may actually be making a difference.

Ms. Plesh, you are just so awesome (for lack of better words at the moment.) To sum up what you are doing in words, isn't easy, so I'm not going to try right now.

I'm at flag team right now, so I can't stay on the computer for long. I say "hi" along with Katy, and I'm sure eveyone else does as well. I know we all miss you, especially me and Katy. You were one of my favorite teachers and one of the best I've ever had. You will always be in my heart and I hope you have success over there in New Orleans.

Love always,

Brittany

Ms. Plesh -- your blogg is amazing! You must turn this into a book - it would sell millions.

Have you read _Fires in the Bathroom: Advice for teachers from high school students_? I think you could really relate to this book and would thoroughly understand it.

Wasn't Stacy Ewing in MY writing class back in Fall of '99? I recognize that name.

You are at my dream school and you are doing my dream job. I want to be a special education teacher at your school and I think I know EXACTLY how to do it... I graduate this December, so keep an eye out for me next fall.

Keep on being yourself.
Love always - Cassandra
