Hello everyone!

My name is Jess, and ever since i was a little girl, i loved the Croc Hunter...

I am 15 now, and i have decided that with the reptiles i already have ( 1 corn snake, 1 hogg island boa, 1 leopard gecko...and soon a tegu!) i would like to start doing an educational program at my school...

i have already talked to a few teachers & parents & they all seem to think its a great idea...

i am hoping to start in the elementary school and perhaps work my way up... and even do other "shows"...

my goal is to help the kids to love and/or respect reptiles instead of fearing them...

i was just curious...does anyone have any advice for me?

...i'm also hoping to expand my collection...

also, i am the neighborhood "snake-wrangler"..haha...i love it... i am hoping to potentially turn that into another hobby this summer...perhaps advertise a little...just to keep the 'creepy-crawlies' safe from shovels!

anyways...any advice? comments? anything at all would be appreciated!

thanks everyone!

jess
