The Official Word from Teach for America

"Congratulations! We are pleased to invite you to join the 2008 Teach For America corps and are excited to assign you to teach secondary physics (grades 6-12) in the Mississippi Delta."

There are a million things I could write about right now, about certification costs, teachers' salaries, career transitions, moving, life and finances in rural areas, issues of class and race. You'll be getting lots of those posts over the next few weeks and months, but tonight I'm just going to enjoy being excited and terrified.
