As it turns out, I am by trade an English Language Arts teacher. I have been teaching in the ELA classroom for the past two years, on a per day and long-term leave replacement basis. Let me share with you some useful sites.
The Encyclopedia Mythica - Myths and legends are a specialty of mine. I can toss off several stories of Greek, Norse, and Celtic myth off the top of my head, but it is always a good idea to have a print or electronic resource. The Encyclopedia Mythica is among the best of them.
