Dear KDP Community,
I am in Santiago, Chile conducting research on incorporating Chilean children literature into Spanish curriculum! Here is my blog about my adventures: http://www.dariapizzuto.com/fulbright-in-chile-adventure/ I also want to share that I applied for and received $150 Classroom Teachers grant from KDP! I purchased multiple books for my classroom with the funds. I hope you enjoy a few pictures of my student's new goodies!

From burning fireplaces, model railroads, to aquariums - Napflix is redefining your 'flix 'n chill.' http://napflix.tv/

- The Importance of Caring & Consistent Adults Mentoring month was February, but in case you missed it, you can visit the Mentoring Connector database—the largest collection of volunteer mentoring opportunities in the country—year-round. Remember, students who have mentors are 52% less likely than their peers to skip a day of school, making mentoring one of the most valuable gifts a child can receive.
