Mother-Daughter Mentoring

Here's a nice idea: Veteran Florida spec. ed. teacher Dayle Timmon's daughter, Courtney, following in her mom's footsteps, has just started her first teaching job, and the two of them have started a blog together "to share our conversations during her first year as a teacher." It's called, appropriately, She's the Apple of My Eye.

In an early entry, Courtney (clearly a real newbie in the workforce) finds herself overwhelmed by her first pay check:

"WOWZERS" - I’M RICH!!! I’ve never seen this much money at one time in my life. I can’t even imagine having this much money at one time.

In response to which, her mom winks to readers: "don't tell her how fleeting that feeling will be!"
