On Thursday, March 18th we met a local hero! We met Daniel's special guest, Mr. Jim Clement. He is a Firefighter! Mr. Clement uses courage to do his job. He works 24 hour shifts from 7 am to 7am the next day. He keeps a very special picture of his family in his fire hat. Mr. Clement has done many jobs besides his current job. He served in the army for several years and was also a chef! His first job however was working in his family's hardware store. That is how he came to know his wife! She worked across the street from the hardware store! Mr. Clement loves to spend time with his family. They like to go to the beach, play on the swings and simply just be together! We are so glad we were able to get to know Mr. Clement!

Each of us has a special gift or talent. Do you know what Mrs. Kate Cord's is? We do! She is a beautiful pianist! Mrs. Cord was invited by her son, Johnny to come and be interviewed by our class today. She shared with us that she has worked for 20 years as a medical transcriptionist. Her vocabulary of scientific words is incredible! She knows all about the human body and what the medical terms are called. After Mrs. Cord told us about her job in the community she shared with us all about her family. Her children Johnny and Christina are very special to her. Johnny is named after Mrs. Cord's husband, Mr. John Cord. We enjoyed learning all about Mrs. Cord today. She left us with a very important message...always be yourself and chase your dreams! She ended her interview with a wonderful sense of humor by saying, "That's all she wrote!".

On March 4th, 2010 a very friendly, humorous, special guest came to meet us! Jasmine invited her Grandma, Mrs. Tina Cook to come and speak to us about her job working on bridges! Have you ever met someone who works 64 feet up in the air? Mrs. Tina Cook has! She has worked on a bridge from underneath it in the Intracoastal Waterway!How do they do that you ask? Well, she was working on a man lift which was on top of a floating barge! If that doesn't impress you, this will! Mrs. Tina Cook was only 1 of 3 women on the crew. She worked with over 20 men on this job! She had to use the lifeskill of courage on this job! It was very challenging her for to do to all of these new tasks but when times got tough she would tell herself, "I can do this!". What a great lesson to us all! Next time we drive over a bridge I am sure we will all think of Mrs. Tina Cook!
