Hi Renee,

Yes that was the one. My name is Bill Lee. I'm entering my 17th year
as a social studies teacher at Kaukauna High School (Wisconsin). I
currently teach AP History, Constitutional Law, and every student's
favorite - Economics. I've actually found many of the sample lessons
depicted helpful. I find these types of programs rejuvenating. Thanks
for responding. My family and I have been off enjoying a long holiday
week. With a four year old this is a good time to catch up on emails.

Take Care
Bill
