Donna\’s fourth grade classroom looked like many others I had seen in the past. Students sat in five rows of six desks. The teacher\’s desk was in front and faced the students. The bulletin board featured student work. IN most respects it appeared to be a typically traditional elementary classroom. Yet something seemed different that day I entered it for the first time. There seemed to be an undercurrent of excitement.
Donna was a veteran small-town Michigan school-teacher only two years away form retirement. In addition she was a volunteer participant in a country-wide staff development project I had organized and facilitated.

Seems St. Peter and the Devil had an agreement to share the costs of maintaining the fence between Heaven and Hell.
One weekend there was a bit of a brawl in Hell that got out of hand, and part of the fence was smashed. It went unfixed for weeks and St. Peter approached the Devil about mending it.
Nothing happened over the period of a month.
Finally, in exasperation, St. Peter said he would sue the Devil if he didn\’t pay up.
\”Oh\” retorted the Devil, \”and where are you going to find a lawyer?\”
