For the past week, I had been mentally preparing a lengthy entry on international education reform. But as I finally sit down to write tonight, I can only think about how it's May.

I have 25 more days in New Mexico, 17 more days in school, 13 more days teaching my 6th and 7th graders who are not in the dorm, 8 more days teaching my 6th and 7th graders in the dorm, 7 more days with my 8th graders not in the dorm, a mere 3 more days with my 8th graders in the dorm, and just three more days of Art Club.

The dormitory and 8th graders will be taking a week off each to go on field trips. And to top it off, I just found out I'll be out for two days next week to get my wisdom teeth removed. The countdown has begun. I am very excited about my new job and my new home, but I am going to miss this one terribly.

I feel like I need to start saying good-bye. Some staff members already know I will be leaving, but how in the world am I supposed to tell the kids?

(That entry on international education will come later this week. Tonight, I'm wallowing in nostalgia.)

Just to tell them "Hagoonee' doo hazho'o da'iinilta'. Aadoo nizhoni go nanihinitaa'. Yeegoo olta' bi dadoolkaal doo iina ya'at'eeh'igii ni dadidooleel. Ahehee' doo hagoonee' sik'is doo sha'alchini." Bye students.

Hello. Could you please email directly. I have several questions about how my school might be able to collaborate with a Native American Indian Reservation to learn about their history and culture as influenced thorought American history? Does your district/reservation have access to Video conferencing equipment?

We are a magnate highschool located in New Jersey about 20 minutes outside of NYC. We have several teachers that are interested in collaborating virtually with Native American students to discuss historical events.

I maybe reached at [email protected] or at (201) 343-6000 ext. 2219.

Thank you for your time and good luck with your next exciting career adventure.

I have enjoyed your blogs, I work as a secretary for Learning Coaches in the urban school district in Wichita, Kansas. I am a Native American, many of your struggles to reach your kids I could relate to. I will miss your blogs but wish you well on your education journey.

Jessica,

I have enjoyed your blogs as well. I am currently going to school full-time to finish up my bachelor's degree and eventually teach either business or history in high school. (I'm working with Spouses to Teachers in Phoenix, AZ - an organization that assists military spouses.) Being a career changer...it will be an interesting experience the first couple of years until I get my footing.

Thank you so much and I wish you well!

Dental Assistants are in a satisfying career that brings in a good income. Generally these jobs are secure even in a recession. The day-to-day responsibilities are not too difficult either. Like any other job in the market, you'll need a polished resume, some work history, and maybe licensure.

The dental industry is expected to grow 36% for the next 8 years. Dental settings are the biggest source of employers of dental assistants. Some other areas that may have dental assistant work include physician offices, public institutions, and the military. You can augment your liklihood of landing a dental assistant job by going through school or gaining a license.
