    Thumbs up Shout Out To The Educators!

    The thread "What Do You DO For A Living?" gave me an idea. I'd like to know how many public or private school educators we have here on the forum. I know Doc Holiday, MYSELF and Euclidean all teach school. Okay, I'll take you if you're a school counselor or a school psychologist. I'll even accept the "enemy" who are ADMINISTRATORS. They too have a story....I guess.

    I teach social studies in a high school deep in the inner city of Miami, FL. I've been a teacher...gee...almost 18 years, now. My wife has 32 years in the system. IF we can work it right, when she retires with full retirement in 3-4 years, I'll take early retirement. I was my school's pick for social studies Teacher of the Year in 2001.

    I work with intellectually gifted high school students in a public school system in Tennessee...not really a teaching position, more of a guidance counselor, although my credentials are in teaching, not counseling. This marks the end of my sixteenth year.

    Well...I'm not a teacher but Ive been married to one for 25 years.
    She teaches History and Civics to 9th graders. Just a few days ago she got "Outstanding History Teacher" award at the state History Day Conference that was just held. Quite an honor it was.

    As a result, many of my friends are teachers, and yes...most of them tote...

    Like HotGuns I'm married to one. She teaches special education. I have to do the toting for now, but I'm working on her slowly. I hope she comes around soon.

    I've taught engineering technology in a community college for nearly 19 years.
    I'm too young to be this old!

    I teach secondary Social Studies and ESL in an urban Houston district (not HISD). So when are we going the way of Utah and getting the right to carry on campus?

    Being peaceful does not guarantee peace, strength and a willingness to commit violence when needed does.

    I retired as the Industrial and Technical engineering department chairman of a local community college four years ago. I was a Navy instructor before I retired from the military and then twenty six years in our community college. Education has been good to me and for me.

    I'm an administrative assistant in education. More specifically, in curriculum development and services. I work mostly with grants. I also go into schools and do presentations on new products.

    Of course! We need good, pro-2A lawyers to defend us in cases of lawful deployment of our chosen protective tools.
