Teacher Appreciation Week – That’s a Wrap


You have an impact on your students every day. They may not always tell you, but you do. Take a look at this video from Adam Savage as he talks about a teacher who had an impact on his life. Who knows, one of your students might turn out to be a Mythbuster and talk about you some day!

    My students and I Loved our gifts. Unfortunately my class was getting interrupted for many different reasons while Game on was happening. Is there a replay of the videos? Is there a place where we can view?
