Good for you. I am sure your enthusiasm will add a new dimension to their lives. Keeping that going during the long dark months will be a challenge, though, but I am sure you will be up to it.

BTW, Katie May is a better writer than many of those on big city newspapers these days!

Hey, an article with a proper beginning, middle and end. Not like so many I've read that start off OK, then the next day someone adds a paragraph to the top and mixes up the rest of it. By the 4th or 5th day, it makes no sense at all, wanders all over the place.

I think it'll be great in the winter, there's lots of photo projects you can do indoors. Great for teaching dof and focus points and lighting. Have a great time with it, I'm sure it will be successful.

Great article and the accompanying picture suits the focus of the article. I can pretty well guarantee that the newspaper coverage will assist you in becoming an integral part of the community.

Looking forward to seeing pix of Tuk . I would imagine the subjects at hand are probably quite different from your home province of Newfoundland.

Very cool, Ira. You will be a big asset to the kids and to the community, and it sure makes you feel good when your efforts are appreciated.... doesn't happen enough for us teachers. The article indicates you teach 9th grade, but doesn't indicate what subject.

That's a great article. The community is lucky to have you for this year. My wife is also in the education business (school psychologist) and as Paul said, educators don't get nearly enough recognition!

Really nice! Both the article itself and the story it tells. Where I live they say it takes three generations before you're considered as one of the locals.
And thanks for promoting our camera brand!
