Since last fall, the members of the Wednesday morning coffee club have taken journeys as far away as the blue ice of Antarctica and the sweltering heat of Costa Rica. I chose an expedition through the Ogden city school district. It was either that or a trip down the Danube. What was I thinking? At times, it seemed so granola. What could go wrong? The first hint was the application form which required three letters of recommend -- no family members. Well, that narrowed things down a touch. You guessed it, I asked the coffee bunch and they came through. With my grandfather's worn briefcase, new white skivvies and a plastic pocket protector, I was officially a substitute teacher.
