A nice surprise came in the mail today---the anthology of first-year-teacher stories, one of which is mine! (My First Year in the Classroom: 50 Stories That Celebrate the Good, the Bad, and Most Unforgettable Moments, edited by Stephen D. Rogers, published by Adams Media) I had received my check several weeks ago, but there had been no mention of a complimentary copy, so I was especially delighted!
The accompanying letter said that I could order "author" copies at a 50% discount, so I'll be placing an order tomorrow!
And the next time I'm in town, you can bet I'll be trolling the bookstores to see if it's on the shelf yet!
:D (I think that's supposed to be a BIG smile, though slightly skewed!)
