Re: I want a chance to teach
Natalie

    Well, I hope Principals will look at my experience and my
    references and think of all the stereotypes that come with being
    from CA. I didn't teach in inner city L.A., I taught in a suburb
    of Southern California that had excellent schools, California
    Distinguished Schools in fact. I am a product of that district
    along with other excellent teachers I know. Did you ever go to
    school in CA, being from CO? What are your experiences there? I
    just don't appreciate the stereotypes that I get A LOT here with
    being from California. Sorry, it's not you I'm upset with, Rodeo.On 4/30/08, Rodeo wrote:
