<<Youre kinda like wonder woman aren't you?
How do you do so many incrediable projects?!>>

Oh goodness <blushing> thanks for the nice words about my website! Naw, not
wonder woman--I just really work at this, trying to keep all the plates
spinning without having them crashing down around my head!!

And as far as projects? Many of them came to life after getting great ideas
from all the wonderful folks on this list!! I was SO SCARED four years ago
at the idea of teaching at the high school level and Deb Sterner was the one
who told me about ArtsEdNet. What a blessing that was! Whenever a new
teacher approaches me about ideas, how to's, etc. this is the first place I
direct them, based on all the terrific help I've gotten over the years.

School will be starting for me on the 27th but I'll be back and forth
between now and then and also working like a fiend at home, trying to get
ready. Usually by now I'm MUCH more organized, but this has been a very
different summer....

Through a whole unlikely series of events, I'm now owned by 6 cats! I had 3
and then adopted 3 kittens in June. I've procrastinated so much, just
enjoying the time with all my furkids. (I've also got 2 dogs, an indoor
rabbit, a huge rat--he's my son's--and a 55 gal aquarium full of tropical

So anyhow, now that I've lapsed into "crazy cat woman" status, I'm having a
hard time shifting gears into the idea of going back to school. I did a
2-week stint at a summer arts camp, though, and that was fun. But strange
summer--didn't go anywhere (i.e. vacation) or do anything different or
unusual. Just hung out--and enjoyed it immensely!!

Again, thanks for your nice comments--I hope people continue to find things
on my site helpful and useful, just as I've found the resources from folks
on this list to be AMAZING!!
