    "Whether you think you can or you think you can't, you're right." --Henry Ford
    Once upon a time, a long time ago, a girl sat in journalism class freaking out. See, she wasn't supposed to be in that class. She was supposed to be in yearbook. She waited until the end of the period and walked up to the new teacher, Mrs. Anne Gillespie, a transplant to Burkburnett High School from some strange school called LD Bell.
    The girl looked at the teacher, took a deep breath a dove in.
    "Mrs. Gillespie, there's been a mistake. I'm in yearbook, not journalism."
    Mrs. Gillespie looked at the girl and smiled. "You're a sophomore, right?"
    The girl sighed in relief. Asking for a different class wasn't going to be so hard after all. "Yes." 
    "Sophomores aren't allowed in yearbook class. But I think you'll like this one."
    BOY, was she right. By the end of week one, I was hooked on journalism. By the end of year I knew I wanted to be Mrs. Gillespie one day.
    Advising student media is my dream job, and I am so thrilled to serve as student media adviser at CTHS this year. I've been advising for 22 years so far, and even though things have changed in the scholastic journalism world, at the heart of it all STORY rules. And this story is just starting.
