College Admissions Essay Workshop Fall 2013: The primary focus of the workshop is for students to write their “big” essay for the common application. There will be five sessions on the Desert Road campus: 9/25, 10/2, 10/9, 10/16, and 10/23 at 7 pm. The total cost of the workshop will be $125 per student, and a minimum of four students is required to run the workshop. Using the Common Application questions, we will evaluate sample essays for their technical aspects and analyze what colleges learn about students from their essays. We will utilize several brainstorming strategies to generate ideas and begin to crystallize students’ ideas. Once their ideas have taken shape, students will write outlines, which will be followed by rough drafts. They will peer-edit each other’s essays, and I will work with each student on “polishing” strategies. If there is time in the fifth session, we will work on supplemental essays. For more information and to register, please contact Nancy Goldberg at email@example.com or 865-1961. (09/10)
I need to find some kind of childcare solution for the 20+ days this school year when I need to work and MWS is closed (I work in the Freeport public school system). My son and I live with my parents and they share a lot of childcare duties, but there's a gap from 12 - 3 PM each day that we need to cover. While I'm open to and interested in any childcare options that other parents know of and trust, my preference would be to have someone come to my home for those hours so my son can rest if he needs to. I'd be happy to babysit on weekends in exchange, and have a couple good references for that service, as I've provided it professionally in the recent past.

We are a family of three, with one small well behaved indoor/outdoor kitty and heaps of love to give to a beautiful home where we can land and get our bearings.
