I think my oldest daughter\'s kindergarten teacher said that to me once, so it really came from a school. That daughter started high school two days ago. :( Thanks for the funny story. I wish you the best in your hopes to become a published author. You just have to keep at it, telling stories from your heart. The heroine in my current book is a teacher as well, but I\'ve also written about a freelance writer, a labor and delivery nurse, an adoption agency worker, an accountant and a speech pathologist, to name a few.
