Ah, yes, I realize that you did mention 2006 in your original post. Definitely keep me in mind for that cruise, but again, summer I have more free time. We'll know our 2006 calendar by the end of this school year.
And good luck in your "blocks" (not sure what that is, but it might be on-site experiences?) In university, I really wanted to continue on to law school right away but knew that I needed a paycheck sooner rather than later. It was the best decision of my life. Nothing has been more rewarding professionally than teaching, and I'm still pursuing law. Best wishes, and yes, by all means, email me all you like.
