I have to admit that there are a few perks too! We have the opportunity to receive mini grants that can be used in our clasrooms (for anything, not just your project), there host a variety of professional outings (with really good food!) and they even throw in Phillies tickets at the end of the year! As a network member I've been invited to participate in speaking events and presentations. This last fall I sat on the panel discussion for the documentary American Teacher. I love the support this organization gives me as a teacher and I am always surrounded by other teachers who love their job as much as I do.CREATE A CLASSROOM BLOG! Check out all that they have done! This year my class chose animal abuse. Their goal was to first teach their peers about animal abuse. They then provided pet care tips to teach their peers on how to prevent animal abuse. They hosted a supply drive and donated supplies to PEACE FOR PUPPIES who in turn donated their supplies to an animal shelter. Thier classroom blog was a part of their "SPREAD THE WORD" movement. Their goal was 50 followers and 10,000 pageviews. Please stop by and follow their blog! They would LOVE the support. Also you can view their TV Show that aired to the school on March 23. Leave them a comment, let them know your reading!
