Dear Alvine,

Thank you for the wonderful book on nursing. I'm going to add it to my collection of material for my women's course at the high school. My course doesn't have an outline because it is in its 3rd year and I'm still developing it. Basically I start out with stereotypes and roles of men and women today and then we go back to the Mayflower and figure out how we got to where we are today!

I'm looking forward to my flight on January 22 and am excited about representing the teaching profession.

Sincerely,
S. Christa McAuliffe
