There are a lot of great ideas out there, and we would love to share them all with you. This show is designed to help teachers incorporate those great ideas into their classrooms. Each week we will do our best to focus on one concept or idea and provide as much details as possible to get you started. The beauty is for people throughout the district to connect and share these ideas that are presented. One week you may find the information to be great but the next maybe won’t suit your needs. We hope people of like minds will be able to connect and share how they are using the resources provided.
