If my master would sell me to a new owner I would be furious! I would never see my friends or my family again. There are so many things I would want to do with my friends and family. First I would probably attempt to run away from the new owners but, that plan would probably fail. The next thing I would try is to get them to not want to keep me. For example, I would be disgusting, messy and rude to the new owners. When that would fail again then I would, hurt them or punch them and then RUN. I would probably sweet talk my way out of it. After I did my sweet talking thing, I would tell them what is wrong with me and other people having a "master". Finally, I think that plan would work. So the new owners would get the leader to change that and then I would get to see my friends and family again. Then, I could have a great life and career and we can all live happily ever after! Also, the world would have peace and the world would be great!

If it says draw a map, does that mean that you have to draw it, or can you print one out.

Mrs. Harris, I think there is something wrong with the site, because, on Friday I submitted of my IIHBT’s online, but now it doesn’t show that I did. I had sure after I submitted to go and check that it was there, and it was. On another note, I was sick today with a virus and I will get my WWP’s to you as soon as I get back to school. Thank you, and see you tomorrow.

I teach 7th grade GT American History and 8th grade GT Louisiana History at Paul Breaux Middle School.My hero is Thomas Jefferson. Jefferson was a jack-of-all-trades. He was a planter, a painter, a sculptor, a writer, an inventor, a thinker, an architect. He built the University of Virginia from the ground up. I would love to earn my PhD at his university or maybe teach there one day when I grow up.
