Announcing the First Juvenile Instructoress

By February 20, 2008

We’ve heard rumors that other blogs have been conspiring to nab Heidi, our latest guest blogger, to be a permablogger elsewhere. Not to burst anyone’s bubble, but such conspiracies are bound to fail. Heidi has accepted our invitation to stay with us as, in her words, the “first Juvenile Instructoress.” Unfortunately, she has made some kind of strange pact for Lent about giving up blogging, and so we must wait until March 22 for her to start as an official permablogger (although she assures us that she will finish out her guest stint). But regardless, we wanted to let everyone know and begin the congratulations process.

  3. I had a friend in high school who gave up Catholicism for Lent.

    Anyway, nice choice for the First Instructoress. I’m looking forward to your contributions.

  5. I have heard of an Instructor and an Instructress, but what is an Instructoress?

  6. I think that Heidi has just invented a neologism…

  8. I should have checked previously using Google books, but it appears that the term has been around.
