Yes, the Soldiers of General Delk's Army have reached stardom! It all began about a month ago... the school had a fire drill and there happened to be a reporter from the Chattanooga Times Free Press at the school interviewing Mr. Evans about our new crosswalk.

Well, the reporter needed a class to get their picture at the crosswalk, and Mr. Evans chose my class! (because all of my parents have signed permission forms to let their students be photographed) After showing the class' photogenic side, the reporter, Katie Ward, happened to ask Mr. Evans, "Is there anything else happening here at Clifton Hills that you'd like to tell me about?" To which, Mr. Evans turned to me and told her, "Delk here has a blog. Tell her about the blog, Delk!"


To tell you the truth, I'm not sure what I said at the time. I'm pretty sure I was doing a good impression of a deer in headlights. But, whatever I said, Ms. Ward must have liked! We spoke again the Friday before fall break and she asked me a few more questions about why I started the blog, the blog's purpose, etc.

I wasn't expecting much, maybe just a little blurb on the side of another article. I mean, it's just a little blog, nothing Earth-shattering, right? NOPE!

Check us out! This is the picture that appeared next to the ARTICLE about the class blog! (Um, the sun was really bright. Sorry 'bout the squints!) My soldiers cheered when they saw their picture in the paper! My solders- Rock Stars!

So, thank you, Times Free Press for turning my students into celebrities! I hope everyone enjoys the article. Ms. Ward, you do fabulous work! :)

Read the article HERE!

Here's a picture of the class with the article. No squints here!
