I had been having a terrible year with many unruly students, including one that could turn a classroom upside down in less than 30 seconds. I had not been able to get any teacher assistance and, if not for being the sole bread earner for my wife and family, I would have quit my job.
Around Christmas time I received a phone call notifying me that I had won two business-class airline tickets to anywhere I wanted to go up to a maximum of 4000 miles. After getting out a map of the world and talking to my wife, we decided that we would go to Hawaii, a place we had always wanted to go.
While difficult to arrange for someone to care for our three young children and meant that we still had to pay for the hotel, food, and entertainment, we decided that we had to go. Needless to say, the Hawaii trip turned out to be a highlight of our married lives which we still remember. I plan on surprising my wife with another trip to Hawaii on our twenty-fifth wedding anniversary.
