Warning--Learning in Progress

It is the third Wednesday of the month and that means a Ready, Set, Go Challenge Card!  The 3 Musketeers (Jeanette, Kelly and me) are back with another challenge this month--our fifth month of this!

I decided on our challenge for September. That month is always back to school, for me at least... so think of your favorite subject in school or even your favorite teacher. It could be grade school or high school or even college. Design a card that reflects your favorite school subject or describes or highlights your favorite teacher.

Many of you know that I am a retired teacher, so this is a special post for me.  I remember my first grade teacher, Mrs. Crass and my third grade teacher, Mrs. Kloss as two of my favorites. I became a Physical Education teacher for the opposite reason as I had a "not the best" PE teacher in high school and I decided to become a teacher to not be like her!  I taught elementary and high school Physical Education in a small school--30 some in each grade--in NW Wisconsin for 3+ years.  I then taught high school Health and Physical Education along with being the Athletic Director at a high school in SW Wisconsin for 33 years! 

This card honors ALL teachers:

Here is the inside of my card:

Please be sure to check out the other Ready, Set, Go cards.  Here is a link to Jeanette's post as she got a bit confused and posted last week, along with Kelly's blog.  I am sure you will not be disappointed and will see a couple of great cards! I hope Kelly and Jeanette like my card and that you might too!  Jeanette is up for the next theme, so be sure to check back to see what we are up to on the 3rd Wednesday in October!
