1. Editor's Note

I was chatting with a teacher friend the other day and asked how her summer had been. "Horrible," she said. "I was in a car accident and my car is still in the shop. I pulled muscle playing baseball, then got a bone bruise when I was hit with a ball. I had to go to four of my friends' weddings. The good thing is, after a summer like that, I can hardly wait to get back to school!"

So, the end of the summer can be a bad thing...or a good thing!
