Default An open letter to all of you.

Dear Beatlelinkers!
Let me introduce myself more. My name is
Joyce. I'm a 46 year old retired special education teacher (due to being
too tired and exhausted to meet the educational,
emotional and sometimes even spiritual needs of
challenged children!) I know my username and
e-mail address have nothing to do with the Beatles, they're just a part of my PRIVATE life.
I joined Beatlelinks because I've been a fan of
the Beatles since childhood, and their music has
definately been, and continues to be healing and
soothing for me. I chose Crackerbox Palace because George Harrison's music has been especially spiritually uplifting for me! and I
joined your discussion forum on the night the
world got the news of his crossing-over. If any
moderators want to move this to another forum, or delete this post it's
cool with me! If any one wants to e-mail me
I can be reached at angelspoke214@comcast.net. or
the address that appears in my postings!
My highest regards to all of you.
-=) Joyce

Hi Joyce,

Thanks for your introduction and I feel honored that you chose Crackerbox Palace for it. I've seen your writings here before.

I have no reason to delete it, because introductions are done frequently, but in the Come Together Forum.

I would love to leave it here, but to have more readers see this, I will move it to Come Together.

Very nice to meet you, Joyce. And a fellow New Jerseyan! Yay! [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

I understand completely about the burn-out. Both my husband and sister are educators, so I know what you mean.

I don't visit "Crackerbox Palace" too often, so I'm glad FPSHOT moved this thread here. I wouldn't have wanted to miss it.

Again, nice to meet you!

Peace and Love
Helene

hi joyce [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] *i'm not from new jersey (i have a friend who is, though!), but it is still very nice to meet you! i'm a fellow george fan--his music has gotten me through some rough spots, as well. on another note, my mother is a college professor, so i've grown up witnessing the demands of teaching. i'm considering going into special education (i'm a senior in high school), and have helped in special ed classrooms before. let me say that i have such a huge amount of respect for you and what you did! anyways, it is nice to meet you and i hope to hear, or i guess read more from you [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Glad you are here, Joyce! [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] I've also had experience working with Special Ed students. I was a substitute Teacher Assistant last year and I enjoyed the job very much. The students were very sweet, although some were a handful too. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
I've been a Beatles fan for nine years and while John is my favorite, George come to a close second. It's nice to have you here! [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Hey Joyce! Nice to meet you! George has always been my favorite Beatle, and I know what you mean about how uplifting his music can be. I'm glad you introduced yourself a little to the rest of the group, and I hope to get to know you better in the future! [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Yes, nice to meet you Joyce! I too really applaud people who work or have worked in special education.

I have not really had any experience with that but I worked in a day care once and that was pretty challenging at times too. But I'm sure not as challenging as your job was.

George was always my favourite Beatle too and I listen to his music more than anyone's because of the special uplifting quality of it.

Anyway, I hope we hear more from you in the future here at the Links and I'll keep your email address in mind [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Dear ImaginePeace78 and LittleDarlin909,
I'm glad that you're considering the field of
Special Education. It can be quite joyful too,
and I've had many rewarding moments over the years! Just remember to take care of yourself first, then you'll be healthier and more joyful in
spirit, and better able to meet the needs of the
students entrusted to your care! Good luck in the future!
Regards,
Joyce =-)

Glad to meet you! I hope your wife enjoys her
job, and you guys enjoy living in New Jersey.
It still is a nice state even though many natural
animal habitats have been torn down needlessly.
Take care and thanks for replying!

Hi Joyce, it was nice to read your post to all of us.
Sorry to hear about the burn out, I can identify, I am a few years older and am just burned out at my current job, I didn't want the job, but with down sizing and all, it was available, wish there was a place for me to to go, but nothing right now, so I went to 12 hr; days to give myself more down time away from the place, so I work 3 days a week 12hrs;then I have 4 off, not all together either of them.
I am a Beatles fan since summer of 63, I enjoy the info that I have found on the Beatles here at the links, so many people, so much knowledge, it's great. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Hi Beatlelover45223!
Sorry to hear about your employment situation! Maybe you could take an online course
to develop your other talents, and eventually
rebuild your life. Corporate downsizing has brought much sorrow to people! I wish you well!

To McCartneymaniac!
I like Paul's music too, although these days
I prefer his classical works! He has such a gift
for melody. Glad to meet you!

To Beatlefan BonJovi!
Pennsylvania is a cool state. It has lots of beautiful nature still intact, and I enjoy going
to the Philadelphia Folk Festival. I've seen
both Paul and George at the Spectrum in Philly,
and Paul in later tour venues in Philly also. It's nice being so close to a major city! Glad to
meet you too!
