Harry & Rosemary Wong ask, "Is it possible that a school district would have no openings at a time of worldwide teacher shortages? But more importantly, why were there no openings in the Medford School District?"...

    Letters to the Editor...

    I really appreciated the article on
    publishing by teachers. I try to publishinh
    especially as a recently retired teacher
    and find it frustrating and elating. The
    statement that sometimes you have to send
    something around 50 times before it gets
    published is comforting since many of my
    articles do not get published after a few
    attempts, but then later sometimes they do,
    even when apparently inferior work is often
    published immediately because the authors
    areconnected. Therefore, I formed my own
    small publishing company, not necessarily
    for profit, but as a method of getting in
    print. I waited for three years to gt an
    article published in a Classics journal,
    only to have the editor die in the process.
    Only by chance did I drive by the company
    and saw a few people standing outside trying
    to figure out what to do with the copy
    machines and binding machines did I
    fortunately get my article published with
    their help. The article turnedout to be
    significant somewhat in Minoan and Mycenean
    archeology and I was lucky to have it
    published. I have learned not to wait
    like that. Also, I copyright everything
    i send out to protect my ideas. Also, I try
    to present the ideas I send out at some
    convention as a paper where the abstract
    is listed and archived.

    I also send as much as I can to ERIC, the
    educational clearinghouse, which lists
    educational publications especially, to get
    some worldwide exposure and permanent
    Often, students, from graduate school to
    high school use the ERIC database and no
    other to get articles for term papers and
    theses. My articles, including the one just
    published in THE TEACHERS GAZETTE, are
    listed in ERIC, if accepted to generate some
    kind of permanence, especially if they are
    on the internet.

    Therefore, I uge all publishers on the
    internet such as those in the TEACHERS
    GAZETTE to list their articles in ERIC
    which can be found on the ERIC website.
    to gain permanence of a sort for their
    writings. THANKS KATHLEEN for publishing
    me in THE TEAHCERS GAZETTE twice.
