Chrome Extension Pick of the Month - Google Docs Quick Create

Google Docs Quick Create is a Chrome extension that allows you to start a new doc, sheet, presentation, drawing, or form right from your browser bar. No more working through your drive or digging around your homepage to find the correct program. Once you click on the Google Docs Quick Create icon and select which one you'd like to create it opens automatically and as always as soon as you start typing it will be saved in your Drive.

Thank you for making a difference

Being the sentimental type I've opted to forgo the typical funny videos I like to add and send perhaps my all time video about teaching. I'm sure most of you have seen or heard this poem before and those that haven't I hope you enjoy it, but either way, I think it rings true to what educators are truly capable of. I know I will see many of you prior to the end of the school year, but if I don't, I hope you have the most enjoyable summer yet!
