Hi Dr. Carlson,
I think I had you as my 7th grade science teacher at Bigelow Middle School. I accidentally stumbled upon your blog while looking through Blogspot. I'm not sure if you remember me or if you even taught at Bigelow... Anyway, I'd also like to say that I love your blog because it is really cool.
Potentially your old student,

Yep. I taught at Bigelow for two years before I had to move to Indiana. I really enjoyed that school.

I recognize the name as well!

Thanks for the nice comments. Hope school is still treating you well.
