Hello from the Panhandle of Nebraska! Yes, we have Carhenge, but we also have only a 35
minute drive to Chimney Rock and the Oregon Trail. Beautiful farms, ranches, and sand
hills surround our community. The drought, however, has stricken our part of the country.
Railroad is the occupation of many of my studentís parents. My name is Ms. Gould and I teach
5th grade social studies. I also teach 6th, 7th, and 8th English, and 6th Religion. I teach 41
students daily. I am thankful for the resources and ideas that have been generated with this
project. The whole staff is planning on engaging their classrooms in the election process.
The information that Iíve shared from this project has motivated and energized them. I will
begin this project on Tuesday in my Social Studies Class and will incorporate it into my
English Classes, as well. Thanks, Walter!
