I put a lot of work into my school site
and I'm sure you did as well. Don't
delete it. Save it, use it as an example
or as a memento of a good experience!

Thanks to all who supplied feedback, btw.
I appreciate your comments and have
redone the site in a thumbnail format
(for easier accessibility and navigation)
courtesy of's website builder:

[If the above link is broken, please
and then in the left margin, click on
"Shippensburg 2001" to view the pages.]

These pages help me remember
the wonderful experience I had at Ship.

I've merely changed the name of the site
to indicate that it's a tribute to my
students during a specific period in time
instead of a current site.

If I was in your position, I would copy the
html, text, images, etc. and take it with
you or transfer the info to a new site
that would allow you to display the
great job you've done. You have student
artwork that you took pictures of as well
as lesson plans that you created/wrote,

I've either deleted or missed your URL.
Would you please send the web address
to me @ ?

I'd love to check it out.

As to "ownership," I can't imagine
the school district suing you or making
an issue of it. Call me naive.

I was in the military for five years
and one thing I remember reading in
All Hands magazine was a quote from
an admiral. When asked how she
accomplished so much, she replied
(paraphrased, but I'm sure I'm
close to the original),

"I discovered that it's easier to
apologize than to get permission."

Worked for her.

Good luck in your decision,
