While you are visiting there you can also check out her book Transcripts made easy. It is a wonderful resource and one I am going to look forward to having when my son gets to high school. It makes the process of writing your own transcripts sound like a breeze! One thing I thought was really neat, was the inclusion of how to write transcripts for special needs students as well.
