How amazing is it to be in a profession that challenges us to stay teachable!

Congratulations to Angie Curtis!

Angie will be presenting a session titled, Integrating Science Picture Books in the Kindergarten Classroom at the 2016 Georgia Science Teacher Association Conference to be held at Stone Mountain February 4-6, 2016. There were over 300 proposals this year. It is so exciting that Angie's session will be included. The session will provide new ideas for immediate use in the kindergarten science classroom.
