Almost as soon as Joni Engelbretson finished her pitch yesterday for money to help get air-conditioning at Arundel Middle and Arundel High schools, county school board members gave their answer: There's no money for her. "There are no real loose dollars hanging around," said Superintendent Carol S. Parham. "If the board directed me to find the money, yes [I could], but it comes from someone else, from someone else's project." Engelbretson and a committee of west county parents have been working for months to raise money to cool the two schools.

But many of them didn't think their teachers would show up, too. "It's kind of funny sometimes," said Arundel seventh-grader Jose Ramirez. "It's a different experience seeing them, like, work. They usually see us work a lot. " That is what Arundel Middle physical education teacher Jason Lively envisioned when he launched the Fit Club last year.

Severna Park Middle School French teacher Mike McTammany said he was among a few county teachers in 2001 who sought to take students to Canada's French-speaking province, Quebec, to apply the language firsthand. Some classes were all set to go, but the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks prompted the school board to prohibit any foreign travel. McTammany said that some who had already paid for portions of the trip lost money. When foreign travel resumed for county schools, teachers sought again to go, and over the past few years there's been a steady stream of Anne Arundel students touring Quebec City, the provincial capital, and Montreal, the nation's second-largest city.

Anne Arundel Though Anne Arundel County exceeded statewide scores in reading and math in the Maryland School Assessments, only five of the county's 19 middle schools, or 26 percent, met the state's requirements for adequate yearly progress. Superintendent Kevin M. Maxwell said that the high percentage of schools whose scores dropped from the previous year left him "incredibly disappointed." "I have faith in the talented and dedicated people in our schools who work tirelessly for the benefit of our children, but clearly what we are doing is not good enough," Maxwell added.

IF YOU LOOK at a map of the United States and draw a line from Ohio to Maryland, you'll notice that there isn't much water connecting the two states. But when Jim Loach, who lives on his 35-foot Hunter sailboat, landed a teaching job at Bates Middle School in Annapolis, he decided to sail from his former port in Huron, Ohio, to his new slip in the city. "A boat is meant to be sailed," Loach, 47, said when asked why he didn't just tie the hull to a trailer and drive the 430 miles. The boat trip took 15 days, but Loach arrived in Annapolis in time to start his new job as a band director for Bates Middle School.
