My dream vacation is very similar to others.  I would love to go to Hawaii.  My family and I have taken many vacations and we all dream of one day traveling to Hawaii for a week or two.  My fondest memories of my children are playing on the beach and making sandcastles. As a small child  I can remember fishing with my dad, and  jumping waves with my mom.  I recently visited a web site called Go Hawaii it will encouraged me even more to explore the islands of Hawaii.

Teaching has been a dream of mine since I was a little girl.  Some how I have always knew that this dream would come true.  I have been blessed to work with children on a daily basis.  My excitement of having my own classroom is near.  I have visited many web sites and most been great.  I believe as a future teacher that these web sites:  Promethean Planet and Education World will be resourceful for flipcharts and lesson plans.
