We don't have to take the Field Trip to learn all of our lessons. Read blogs, read thread posts, read Secrets. Learn in the Classroom and put ideas that others have used into place in your life. Honestly, learning in the Classroom is so much easier than learning on the Field Trip!

Hi - if you every need a boost - go to Donorschoose.org. This is a site for teachers to post the needs for their classrooms... everything from Dr. Seuss to microscopes. I try to visit this site every payday - even if it's only a couple of dollars. Knowing that I'm improving classrooms in America makes me feel like a million. And the teachers always send the best thank you notes.
