Not in the clamor of the crowded street, not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, but in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

REDIRECT ALERT! (Scroll down past this mess if you're trying to read an archived post. Thanks. No, really, thanks.)

Due to my inability to control my temper and complacently accept continued silliness with not-quite-as-reliable-as-it-ought-to-be Blogger/Blogspot, your beloved Possumblog will now waddle across the Information Dirt Road and park its prehensile tail at http://possumblog.mu.nu.

This site will remain in place as a backup in case Munuvia gets hit by a bus or something, but I don't think they have as much trouble with this as some places do. ::cough::blogspot::cough:: So click here and adjust your links. I apologize for the inconvenience, but it's one of those things.

Glückwünsche, y'all!

Montgomery teacher named national German teacher of year

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- Nellie Tietz loves to push her eighth-grade German students at Baldwin Arts and Academics Magnet School to get the most out of them. That dedication is paying off.

"She is a wonderful teacher," Nickey Wirshing said. "She pushes you and you hate it, but then you love her for it."

Her students aren't the only ones who love Tietz. The National Association of Teachers of German has named her the 2003 Outstanding German Educator at the secondary level. The 6,000-member organization selects three winners each year — one at the elementary level, one for secondary education and one who teaches college-level German. She will be honored at the association's annual meeting in Philadelphia in November. [...]
Good job, Ms. Tietz.
