Calling all teachers



On Sept. 7, the Enquirer published an impassioned letter from Taryn Grinker about her experiences teaching at Cincinnati Public Schools' Vine Elementary in Mount Auburn (May 1988-June 1999). The low-achieving school is in the first year of a program designed to raise academic performance.

The Enquirer would like to hear from Tristate teachers on the biggest challenges and greatest joys about their jobs.

Please confine responses to 300 words or fewer.

E-mail comments by Sept. 25 to bcieslewicz@enquirer.com or fax (513) 768-8340 or write Bill Cieslewicz, Education Editor, Cincinnati Enquirer, 312 Elm St., Cincinnati OH 45202.

Please include name, daytime phone, school and grade you teach.

If possible, include your photograph.
