You asked for it, you got it! If I eventually get hired as a language arts teacher, I plan on using this in my classroom. My fellow education students loved it so much, they wanted the template. So here it is, free for the whole world to use!
I am a fourty-something who used to work full time, went back to college, graduated, and now I'm a part-time substitute teacher, trying to raise two kids (13 and 8), and married over 15 years to my high-school sweetheart. Eight years ago, I moved from an urban apartment to a rural house that needs lots of improvement. So all my spare time is spent adjusting to this new lifestyle and working on the house.
