I am a teacher in California, born and raised in Southern
California, but my husband was born and raised in KY. We

little success ...See More

included writing portfolios, on-demand writing tests, and/or
reading tests.

I'm in the eastern part of the state, and we have a large

I haven't taught or been in every school in Kentucky, but the
schools in Ohio County are wonderful. We have beautiful
