My blog's name

I wanted to share with all of you why I named my blog, See Jane Teach Multiage.  I originally wanted just See Jane Teach but I guess that had already been taken.  I added the multiage part because I am a multiage teacher, anyway back to the name of my blog.  My mom came to America when she was 13 years old.  She lived in Germany and came soon after the war had ended.  They came to America in a ship and landed in New York City, first to Ellis Island.  It was one of the last ships to stop there. Then they took a train to Minneapolis where she grew up.(me too)  When she went to school, the teachers had her learn English by using the Dick and Jane reading series.  When I was born she wanted her daughter to have a very American name, so I was named Jane.
That's it, I just like that story.
