This was my first job and as a young teacher (only a few years older than my students) and a natural rule follower, I was keen to do everything just right and present myself in just the right way.

2012 Kia Rio Hatchback(Edited from AP) It's still called the Kia Rio. But the five-door hatchback for 2012 is a notable new model with sporty appearance, well-laid-out interior, a more refined and quiet ride and a government fuel economy rating of 40 miles a gallon on the highway.

The revamped Rio also is wider and a bit longer than its predecessor, has more power and is one of the few in the segment whose four-cylinder engine is direct injected for powerful, efficient response.
