At the beginning of this month I received the following email from a teacher named Sarah:
I just wanted to let you know that, as a student teacher, I’ve been referencing your web page (http://hauntjaunts.net/blog/find-haunted-places/) for our history lessons. I know it might sound a little weird, but I like to include a couple lessons on haunted historical places. It’s a fun addition to our history classes, and your page has been most helpful…thanks for making it!
I hope you don’t mind me asking, but is there any way you could include a web page my student found? He was pretty excited to share it: “Local Favorites – America’s Famous Hauntings” – http://www.localpages.com/content/local-favorites-americas-famous-hauntings.html
It’s a great collection of historically haunted places from all over the US. I figured you might have a use for it as an additional resource on that page, or maybe somewhere else on your website. I think my student would really get a kick out of seeing his suggestion published…His name is Kyle and we’re in Grade 5, if you would like to give him a little “shout out”! Let me know. Hope I could help!
Help? Holy smokes! That email made my day!
I meant to post all this much sooner than this, but the last couple of weeks have been nutty busy. However, today I’m finally getting around to it.
Of course I made sure to include Kyle’s great find of a link under the Lists of Haunted Places section on our Find Real Haunted Places page. While I was at it, I also Stumbled it, because it’s a note-worthy find. Kyle, great job!
And Ms. Sarah, thank you so much for letting Haunt Jaunts be a part of your classroom. Your email absolutely tickled me pink. I’m so happy you took the time to contact me and share a new resource for me to add to the list.
