Making life easier for teachers is what we love to do – it’s kind of our thing. The last 12 months have shown us all the importance of working together, using technology, and being flexible. In that spirit, we thought we’d share some of our favourite online resources. We’re sure there are a lot of other great websites, blogs, social media channels and more out there and we’d love to hear about them. Email your favourites to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or tell us if there is anything that can make these e-newsletters, or are social media more helpful. We love hearing from you guys!
