The Curriculum Corner: That One Teacher

We have all had "that one teacher" who gets it; "that one teacher" who changes us; "that one teacher" who makes learning an amazing life-long journey. For me (and many others, no doubt) that "one teacher" was my 5th grade teacher Mr. Brosius, who passed away last week. This week's edition of the Curriculum Corner will be a tribute to "that one teacher" click below if you would like to read more! As we prepare to celebrate the holidays with our families and loved ones, I would like to thank each of you for all you do. After all, you could very well be "that one teacher" for our kiddos, and not even know it!
