My mission statement~

I intend on "trying" to live a life that is about: not putting in my mouth things that are bad for me or have come from an animal that was treated cruely while alive on this earth and during slaughter, creating lasting fond memories for my children and grandchildren, adventure, challenging myself, respect others regardless of species, race, color or creed, taking risks, having fun, being grateful, respecting myself & my body, being authentically myself, taking responsibility for my actions, being proactive, being a problem solver, taking action, introspection, transition, change, honesty, growth, loving & helping others, having integrity, doing my best, being easy on myself, enjoying this world, becoming well read, seeing the wonder of it all and never allowing fear to hold me back!

Megs next big adventure~


Oakland Teaching Fellows Overview
The Oakland Teaching Fellows is looking for outstanding professionals and recent graduates to become part of this highly-selective program to teach where they are most needed. This program is designed to attract only the most outstanding individuals to increase students' academic achievement as teachers in the Oakland Unified School District (OUSD). Young, mid, and post-career professionals from all fields, as well as recent college graduates - particularly those with experience in math and science- will bring their experience, knowledge, and records of achievement to the classroom to positively impact the lives of students most in need of their leadership. Fellows will become part of a powerful network of educational leaders and work with other progressive educators to make dramatic improvements in our student' academic experiences.
Your opportunity to make a difference in educational equity is right now, as Oakland continues to implement its plan to ensure greater student achievement, effective management, and quality instruction. Become a part of this historic turning point in the Oakland Unified School District by working to educate our city's children.
Candidates benefit from a streamlined application and selection process and, if selected, the opportunity to participate in a comprehensive Training Institute prior to teaching. Oakland Teaching Fellows pursue a teaching credential by enrolling in a credentialing program while teaching full-time and receiving a full-time teacher's salary.
The Oakland Teaching Fellows is committed to providing the students of Oakland with a new group of teachers who will work to increase their level of achievement and academic success. Fellows teach at all levels in the District's most challenged schools. We are particularly looking for outstanding candidates to teach math, science, special education, Spanish, bilingual education and physical education in high-need classrooms throughout the District.

YOU. GO. GIRL!
Love, your mama!

With due respect wow gold and humility I write you this proposal which I believe would be of great interest to you. I am Mr.Ateeq Rahman Khan, currently Head of Corporate wow gold affairs with a reputable bank here.The battle PvP reasons frankly, I started working for an alternative to WOW, as I expect a number of measures I am not sure this is in the dofus kamas appropriate forum, but I'll try to help, but for those who may enter here with the same concerns about the BG. You can not control what the adversary, but you can create kamas dofus your own gains honor. During the course of which Mod you on both pages is available, the Alliance and the Horde, if you suspect fraud, you do not want it, create your own AV Premade.May I recommend you wow gold to your own WSG, AB, and EotS premade? As you've noticed, more generally premade roll over Mops because PUG's are not world of warcraft gold coordinated, and most probably not well enough. Honor, maximize profits, jumping back and forth between AB wow powerleveling and EotS, if you have a queue of pre-you.The remains leader and re-queuing, if someone in the BG calls for by wow power leveling ago premade.If can 't find enough people, one BG complete within your corporation and friends, then perhaps world of warcraft gold you should do what someone on our server The creation of a separate channel for pvp premade.Now, everybody wow geld looking for a pre-pvppremade can. the nerf my friend quit playing.The RAF program should be removed its a free to play wow gold mechanic used to draw money in for a company which does not have a subscription fee.I think one pissed High Templar would pretty much bedofus kamas GG for all of that..Yet another fastest player trying to meddle his nose in REAL melee. The battlecruiser can't take out anything on its own. And for that cost? Why buy it for a support unit when the Lord of the Rings Online Gold valkeriye fulfills the role? Or the wraith for that fact. On paper its supposed to be one of the assault ships, but its not. REAL melee? Are you stupid? I meanLOTRO Gold look, dude...your probably one of em noob zerg players. lol its so easy to play em. build x5 hatcheries and profit???? One defilier flyff alone could wipe out a whole terran battlegroup of forces. I remember the glory days of defliers flyff penya and mutalisks. Oh, and another way to win air fights with zerg is to send in a billion overlords. To buy cheap Final Fantasy XI gil WOW gold,WOW money,WOW accounts,WOW power leveling here will be your best choice!Those cases are clear to my mind because every time it happens, I ffxi gil ask myself "how the hell do you dodge an attack you can't even SEE?"Melee DPSers in your raid are playing very badly, increasing the eq2 plat damage to your tank and decreasing their own damage output. Mobs do dodge from behind, but they don't parry or block. Simply fighting from behind a mob results in an increase of 5% in your DPS on most mobs eq2 gold because you cut parry out, plus you avoid giving the mob the 'next swing is 50% faster' that they get on a successful wow po parry.Don't forget that some even get BONUS attacks when they parry. I can't tell you how many times we wiped wow or on Gruul because of hateful strikes...Melee LOTR Gold DPS should always be behind mobs as much as possible in raids.Or zerglings, never tanks. And for your Warhammer gold little tank theory,and buy Warhammer gold guardian do aoe.No, seriously. I like it like it has always been Amen brother! my battlecrusers got torn up soooooo easily! i think the carriers are fine. the intersepters Warhammer gold look weaker, though.They are the same, carriers just can't make extra 4 interceptors now.
