10 Days of Twitter Challenge

This challenge is designed to expose you to the beauty of Twitter. Yes, you can "Keep Up with the Kardashians on Twitter, but you can also learn from some of the very best educators across the world.

While you are learning from other educators across the globe, you can also get a peek into other Sigler classrooms by following our campus hashtag #siglerlearns.

As if opening the door to the world to connect with thousands of other educators is not enough, folks who choose to complete the 10 Days of Twitter Challenge and complete this short survey (click here) you will be awarded an extra planning period or receive three "leave @ 3" passes to be used at your leisure.
