Sandy ~ Thanks so much for reading and writing. I am glad you look forward to the posts. Yes, I have a guinea pig named Marble. He comes to school every Monday with me and I take him home on the weekends. I suppose I could ask a student to take him home but you really need to find someone you know will be responsible. I have a second cage and supplies at home so all I have to do is take him in his little carrier back and forth. I have had hamsters and fish in the past. I found fish don't last long and hamsters are harder to pick up. The kids really love the guinea pig and he is so friendly. I wish you much success in your student teaching and getting a job soon. Happy New Year Sandy!
