Drive Carefully


Last weekend we lost a dear member of our school community. An ELL (English Language Learner) teacher was killed in a head-on drunk driving accident in Manchester. Some dumb-dumb in a giant truck got drunk and decided to drive down the wrong side of 293 late Friday night. Edward probably never knew what hit him (hopefully).


Edward was one of the sweetest and most thoughtful people you would ever want to know. He was also one of those people who drove 55 mph because that was where his car (which had a peace sign on the hood) was most efficient, and he was out to save the world--one plastic bottle and recycled tote bag at a time. Besides being an amazing person, he was a dad, and an incredible teacher. He had a way of reaching his students, and I believe that he truly made a difference in their lives. I know that my life is brighter having known him, and for that I am grateful.

  2. Oi, achei seu blog pelo google está bem interessante gostei desse post. Gostaria de falar sobre o CresceNet. O CresceNet é um provedor de internet discada que remunera seus usuários pelo tempo conectado. Exatamente isso que você leu, estão pagando para você conectar. O provedor paga 20 centavos por hora de conexão discada com ligação local para mais de 2100 cidades do Brasil. O CresceNet tem um acelerador de conexão, que deixa sua conexão até 10 vezes mais rápida. Quem utiliza banda larga pode lucrar também, basta se cadastrar no CresceNet e quando for dormir conectar por discada, é possível pagar a ADSL só com o dinheiro da discada. Nos horários de minuto único o gasto com telefone é mínimo e a remuneração do CresceNet generosa. Se você quiser linkar o Cresce.Net(www.provedorcrescenet.com) no seu blog eu ficaria agradecido, até mais e sucesso. (If he will be possible add the CresceNet(www.provedorcrescenet.com) in your blogroll I thankful, bye friend).
