I really don't like my life as a drummer boy. I really didn't want to become one, what I really wanted to do was to be a drummer in some sort of concert, you know, playing amazing classics and whatnot. I didn't know that when the private said that he wanted me to pick up some drumsticks and drum, he really wanted me to get up at the crack of dawn and wake everyone up, and at night to signal curfew. What a life!

About the Blogger

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.
