Since it seems like we are all getting to know each other (handle names, locations, ages), I think it would be interesting to know what we all do for a living.

I am a middle school math teacher. I teach mostly 7th and 8th graders basic math, pre-algebra, and algebra I. I am fortunate to say that I teach in a great school district at a wonderful school - we're one of the better middle schools in the state (according to scores).

Now, what do ya'll do?

Right now I am a full time college student at the California Maritime Academy. I am majoring in Marine Transportation which will give me a Third Mate's license. I am also going for the QMED (Qualified for Marine Engineering Department) which means I will have my Marine Engineering license too. Along with everything else, I am a midshipman in the Merchant Marine Program here at school, where I will be a commissioned officer in the Navy upon graduation and have the option of going 4 years active or 6 years in the reserve as long I sail on my license. Eventually I hope to be running tankers for Polar Marine (Arco) when I get out of here, which should be in April 2004.

I work for that evil giant, The Phone Company. Ma Bell has been good to me though, so I can't complain. I am a construction splicer, copper, fiber optics, whatever they ask for.

Please no jokes about phone guys at 7-11!!

I just started with the city of Rocklin as a maintenance 1. Great benefits but only 2/3rds the pay of Herman Miller where I worked last. Hopefully within 2 years with hard work I can bring the pay rate up.
