I’m a bit jealous of bloggers who sit down knowing what they want to write about, and they write it. Sure, they may edit a bit… or the details and color may fill themselves in as they type, but otherwise they knock it out, hit “publish,” and the views come click-click-clicking along.

I always swore I’d never be one of those teachers. You know the type – frustrated and hostile, blaming their kids, and longing for the “good ol’ days.” To be honest, I’ve often kinda looked down on that flavor of educator – wondering why they’re still in the classroom, and hoping they find somewhere else to work out their issues.
One of the minor downsides to teaching ancient history for nearly half the year is that there simply aren’t the multitude of cool documents – letters, speeches, diaries, newspaper articles, and the like – which make U.S. or European History so naturally freakin’ awesome.
