Yesterday I met with a wonderful group of teachers from Flynn Park Elementary School in the University City School District.  I showed them all of the great features of the Discovery streaming website and how to use such fuctions at the Advanced Search, Writing Prompt Builder, and the Discovery Atlas.  These teachers are motivated, excited and engaged learners.  I know that I would love to be a child in their classrooms!

Remember that you, too can have an on-site professional development workshop in many different areas.  Please give me a call at 314-692-1212 or email me at sfranks@csd.org if you’d like to schedule a professional development session for your school (district).
