"I was so exhausted by the end of the week," said Hisako Kawaguchi, who is a research librarian for the same company.

In the three years since Kristina Miller became a teacher at Alexandria Street School north of downtown Los Angeles, she has been bounced from grade to grade like a penny on a kettle drum.
