TEACHER RESOURCE PICK OF THE MONTH
Resource Area for Teaching
I’ve posted this once before last year, but just think the place is so AWESOME that I had to post again. After visiting to drop off some of my past classroom supplies, I was just stunned at the many types of unique supplies and ideas that this place has to offer not to mention meeting space for informal professional development and workshops. And it’s environmentally friendly! If you haven’t visited, check this place out for your current internships or future jobs in the classroom!

Needless to say, the Monica Dewitt and Cassidy Blevins pitched right in! So, Thursday morning, March 7th the Art Room was a buzz with enthusiastic Student Council Members and bustling TCs! The result was magical; the pride and sense of community was palpable. It was a day to remember!!
