Sean Beaton @backcountrynut: My provocation for my students today: Why do we stand during the national anthem?
Miss Shelby Stark @MissShelbyStark: “What will the teachers of 2116 think of the schools in 2016?!” This discussion question really got me thinking! #edchat #abedchat
Jessica Scalzo @Scalzorino: First day back as a #substituteteacher today. I sure missed those kiddos! Good to be stretching my teaching muscles again!
