    The First Lesson (Open- TG for entry)

    It all started with a royal decree. No that wasn't right - it was more a royal proposal, nopony was obliged to participate. Strictly volunteer, at least at the school district level. Princess Twilight's Teach Exchange Program for the Benefit of Equestria and All Students Hence Within, that was the official and lengthy title of the proposal when Cheerilee first heard the idea from Mayor Mare at the last annual meeting of all Ponyville educators. The idea was for one or more teachers spending a semester teaching at the general level at a school elsewhere in Equestria in hope of bringing a fresh cultural perspective to the students as well as broaden the cultural experience of the teachers. Mayor Mare thought it was an excellent idea - the mayor, ever the politician, was eager to support almost any idea of Twilight's, given the princess having her home right in town. When the mayor called for any of the teachers to consider joining, only Cheerilee raised her hoof to volunteer, and only after considerable debate in her mind over leaving Ponyville, even if only for a little while. Still, the opportunity to explore and getting to know the culture of another part of Equestria appealed greatly to the mare, and Mayor Mare was more than gleeful that *somepony* finally said yes. Thus, Cheerilee found herself on a train to Dodge Junction after a tearful farewell to her students and a lecture on being the best they can be for their substitute teacher from Baltimare. Cheerilee stepped off the train after about a day of travel. It was nice to be walking on all four again after having to sit for so long. She had spent the entirety of the trip reading up on Dodge Junction, being too apprehensive to sleep at all. The town itself wasn't all that much different than Ponyville - small, but not too small, and rather quiet, at least when there are no festivals. Sure was hotter and dryer though, it was a good thing then that she had on a wide brim straw hat with a cheery blossom sticking out of the side. She quickly checked into her temporary new home, a medium sized apartment above the local saddle store in the center of town. It wasn't luxurious, but it was comfortable and had all the amenities a single professional mare needed. Cheerilee could have spent more time there unpacking, but what the schoolteacher really wanted to see was the building where she would work hard to help shape the minds of future stallions and mares, so as soon as she could, she trotted off to the oldest school in Dodge Junction, with a couple boxes of supplies bouncing on her back, straw hat on her head. It didn't take more than a half hour to walk there, but when she arrived all Cheerilee could do is stare in awkward silence. Was she in the wrong place? Cheerilee quickly scanned the map again, nope this was it! The schoolhouse standing before her though... It was less rustic looking and more, well, dilapidated. Maybe that was too strong of an adjective, it was better to say it needed some TLC. A lot of TLC.
