1. The rules of the game get posted at the beginning.
2. Each player answers the questions about themselves.
3. At the end of the post, the player then tags 5-6 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read the player's blog.
4. Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer.
1. What was I doing 10 years ago?
Ten years ago I was a few weeks shy of my undergraduate degree at Simmons, where I was a student in a five year combined BA/MS program in intensive special education. I was doing my clinical teaching at Franciscan Children's Hospital/Kennedy Day School and looking for an apartment, I eventually landed in Jamaica Plain in Boston.
2. What are my 5 things on my to-do list for today (not in any particular order):
- charge my cell phone
- research neurofeedback as a treatment for Asperger's syndrome
- return a text message from my brother's girlfriend in Hawaii
- try to finish my (late) quarterly progress reports
- do some work on the Australia thematic unit I am teaching
4. Things I would do if I were a billionaire:
- pay off student loans and all bills, buy a house
- pay off my dad's bill and his mortgage so he can retire
- pay off my brother's bills so he will have some nieces and nephews for me and then make sure he has money to bring them home to visit twice a year (or more, but Hawaii to Massachusetts is brutal)
- start my own special needs school focused on AAC and AT for learners with multiple special needs
- letting my introverted side win and not socializing very much
- not enough attention to a healthy diet and exercise (hmmm.... if I were a billionaire I would pay someone to make me healthy meals and snacks, but I doubt I would bother to increase my exercise very much)
7. 5 jobs I have had: Personal Care Attendant, Physical Therapy Aide, Camp Counselor/Director, Research Assistant, Language Lab Clerk (I was thinking of writing "lab rat" because in college I volunteered as a subject for studies to make cash, but it isn't really a job)
8. 6 people I want to know more about, because I'm just that nosy:
Ricky at ATMac, Lon at No Limits to Learning, Paul Hamilton from Free Resources from the Net for (Special) Education, Larry Ferlazzo from Larry Ferlazzo's Websites of the Day, MadATer from MadATer, Barrie Ellis from One Switch.Org
