You can tell it has been 3 days since my last blog, and with good reason! The last three days have been the most incredible, information packed days I can remember in a very long time.

Hi Deborah! I teach 4th grade in KS. We study the 50 states. I (we) would be interested in connecting w/ your 5th grade. We study them by region. When we study NC, maybe we could Skype your 4th grade experts! Let me know if you're interested.

How employment is related to your coursework examples

When fresh out of college, chances are you have little to no work experience, which means your resume may look incomplete to some extent. To make it worse, questions like "what is your past work experience?" seems to be a common pertinent step in all job interviews. Although you may have…See More
