Since I already blog at my own domain I did not want to duplicate all of that content here at LumberJocks each time that I made a post.

So, Beginning with this post I will have some short into text and a link to entries on my blog. If you are using an RSS reader you can still subscribe to the posts if you...
Last month, I visited the home of Paul & Linda Fulcher, publishers of Canadian Woodworking Magazine. (See the first part of this series). This week, I was able to ask some questions for the MsDebbieP’s Company interviews series. THE HISTORYThe Canadian Woodworking Magazine was first published in 1995 and was black and white print on newsprint pages.

I wanted to talk to everyone about teaching, as a profession. I am sure that with the talent that I have seen already up to this point that surly there must be a few teachers in the Lj. I recently have become a teacher in high school, teaching my profession, basically Emergency Medicine. I have been an EMT for way to long (15 years) but found that working in the field for 5 years or more I am able to teach what I do through the ROP (regional occupational program).
