...AND THEN THERE'S S'MORE...

LOVE THIS IDEA!!! Talk about FLIPPING the classroom...Wait 'till you read about the idea of FLIPPING the way we do Staff Development! Be careful...you know how I get when I see something that interests/excites me! Any guinea pigs out there who are willing to try this with me and Angie? (As always, Thank You Angie for providing me with such thought provoking articles!)
