Another Meme

I was tagged by Clix for this meme and since I can’t resist some of these and like to read what is posted by others, here is mine:

The Rules…
1. The rules of the game get posted at the beginning.
2. Each player answers the questions about themselves.
3. At the end of the post, the player then tags 5-6 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read the player's blog.
4. Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer.


1. What was I doing 10 years ago?

I was teaching at a school that I thought I would retire from.

I wanted to let you know that Dr. Scott McLeod from Dangerously Irrelevant asked for great blogs of interest to Special Education teachers and I posted your blog on the wiki that he has set up. You might head on over and link to some blogs that you know.
